Re: Your government at work:
Consider what Intrepid Wheelwoman said a few posts back.
She can ride from town to town without riding in traffic. On a 'highway' meant for bicycles.
I'd pay some fairly steep fees and taxes for that.
Of course, our two stroke IC engines, and others, would not be allowed. That would be a shame.
And I hate to say it here, of all places, but I'd go back to strictly pedal biking if that's what it took. I'd still be happy as a clam.
Or we could all go electric. They'd probably be allowed.
