Separate bike lanes not needed

To the Editor:

I don’t mind sharing the road with bikers, but I don’t feel they need their own lane.

A separate lane on major roads, i.e. Market or Main, would bring more harm than good.

Traffic is too often congested enough the way it is now. However, it doesn’t appear we have a say in the matter. That’s wrong!

If we do have to live with this and the Troy Police Department is going to hand out tickets to drivers, then they need to be as strict with the bikers when it comes to obeying traffic laws. Too many of them run stop signs, don’t use hand signals and generally ignore the rules.

Let’s make this a real share!
