    Citizens of Coronado pull out all the stops with their crazy arguments against bike lane markings on city streets: http://www.kpbs.org/news/2015/sep/23/coronado-puts-brakes-all-future-bike-lanes-after-r/

    It’s unfortunate that the city has broad immunity with regards to injuries that occur on their streets due to these bad design decisions. If those same citizens knew that their taxes would go up to cover those liabilities, I’m fairly certain that they wouldn’t be able to act out their prejudices in public like they are currently.
