Dead Cyclists Always At Fault, Says Councillor Rob Ford

Ah, I kind of pity Rob Ford. He’s way out in Etobicoke-land… his braincells always under assault by carcinogen-laced car and truck exhaust…

From the Star, and picked up by BlogTO:

“I can’t support bike lanes. Roads are built for buses, cars, and trucks. My heart bleeds when someone gets killed, but it’s their own fault at the end of the day.”

-Rob Ford, Toronto City Councilor

I’d like to invite Rob to check out archive of Toronto’s Weekly Carnage – it’s not just cyclists in there… most of it is other people in cars dying, and pedestrians dying. Using your logic it’s their fault they were killed because they were in a car, or going for a walk.

And for the record, roads have been around for FAR longer than cars have been. Thousands of years longer… the Roman Empire had a fantastic road system, and not one car! Not even a moped!

Even here in Toronto, roads pre-date cars.
