It's definitely political. When Bratina was councillor I suggested a no cost idea (in fact might generate revenue with the installation of meters) that would not impact traffic and would make pedestrian travel on Main St. safer. The suggestion was to allow all day parking on one side of the street giving pedestrians a buffer zone. The answer I got back was that it would have an impact on traffic flow. What a joke. Losing one lane on Main would have zero effect on traffic flow. I witnessed an accident at Wellington where traffic was down to one lane and traffic was only backed up 2 blocks. This suggestion did nothing for cyclists but there are a lot of people who walk Main and it can be an uncomfortable feeling , not to mention unsafe, having cars zooming the curb lane within inches of you. But we all know, cars rule.
