JonC >> I travel slower than cars speeding down main, but make it up at parking.

I'm happy for you, but you still haven't answered why you need a dedicated SLOW lane?

>> Other items listed included the economics of not paying for parking (or gas) as well as pleasure and exercise, which is being done on my time, and my roads. you ass.

I think it's great that you can enjoy free parking and a nice workout, but why can't you do this while traveling at the same speed as the other 97-99% of people who use the road? Why does your love of exercise and free parking have to slow the roads for the 99% of people who aren't members of your green cult?

Dave Kuruc >> Jon - why don't you just smash a cupcake in his face and be done with it.

Hippie attack, watch out!

arienc >> If motorists could travel at the same speed as high-speed trains, they wouldn't need dedicated SLOW streets.

I thought you were in favour of slowing car traffic down? Now you're saying that cars should be traveling faster, which is it?

>> drop the notion that cars are an efficient mode of transportation, because they're not.

You're right, trains are much more energy efficient than trucks when it comes to moving freight long distances. However, in an urban environment, cars and trucks are the only way to get to specific business locations (i.e. food to a grocery store, clothes to a department store, electronics to a big box store, etc). Do you see how it might be hard to have a bullet train line go to each business in Hamilton?
