Cyclists and riders and walkers are more important than drivers

 

More awesomeness out of NYC today:

Today, Mayor Michael Bloomberg reinforced his reputation as a transportation reformer, and reaffirmed the worst fears of his bike-skeptic critics, by proclaiming cyclists more important than drivers.

“Cyclists and pedestrians and bus riders are as important, if not, I would argue, more important than automobile riders,” said Bloomberg, at the National Association of City Transportation Officials, of which his transportation commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan is president. “We need the trucks to be able to deliver merchandise. I don’t know there’s any great solution to that. But mass transit is the only ways we’re gonna work ourselves out of the congestion that always inhibits growth. And we’re finding ways to do that.”
