I heard someone from Complete Streets interviewed on CBC's Here and Now while I was driving home from work down Highway 6, and she made many good points-- it's the same thing as Walter Furlan's 8-80 argument: that streets should be designed to be navigable by everyone, by many different means-- which includes cars, because most of us have to drive sometimes. As I've argued before, walkability = bikeability = driveability. The argument for extensive networks of bike lanes and safe sidewalks transcends politics, it's not a matter of left vs. right. It simply makes sense.
