Hard to have a thriving, dynamic city and a car in every garage. Can't be done. Cars just take up too much damn space.

That's what it all comes down to. There is no such thing as enough space for cars. They have 8 lanes on University Ave and apparently they can't spare one for the bike lanes.

I read an article that gave a figure for the equivalent amount of space every car takes up on the earth when you consider the parking lots, gas stations, and all the low value added land uses cars command in cities. I wasn't able to find it but maybe someone here will remember.
