A state agency that we will be able to live without:
Oregon Pedestrian and Bicycle Program
The Oregon Pedestrian and Bicycle Program provides direction to ODOT in establishing pedestrian and bicycle facilities on state highways.
It's a matter of priorities. Almost everybody gets to work by car. Every bussiness trasports their goods with motor vehicles. Nobody buys a new tv and hauls it home on their bike.
Yet we spend a disproportionate amount of resources on non-motor "transportation" rather than improving the infrastructure for the majority.
I get very tired of hearing the traffic report say "normal slowing" on an interstate highway. And for some bizzare reason people seem to have accepted that going 15 mph on a road that says 55 mph is normal.
We can laugh at the old soviet union and how they had to stand in line for bread but look at us, we pay for the roads, government diverts the money and we "stand in line" to go to work and go back home.
