Great piece! As a suburbanite who has both cycled and driven Herkimer/Charlton as a quicker route home, the whole discussion has made me more aware of the ethical choices I make when commuting.

For, I too, have been guilty of seeing these streets (neighbourhoods, actually), as a convenient route usually westbound for my trips from the east mountain. In a car, I should really be using the actual arterial roads (I don't think Terry Whitehead knows what those actually are).

If I am to continue to drive either Herkimer or Charlton (and I hope to minimize this as much as I can), I will certainly do so with an understanding that I am sharing those streets with cyclists, pedestrians and most importantly a neighbourhood.

Thanks for this perspective from a neighbourhood dweller.
