Yes they can! The city already has a tremendous amount of bikes already on the roadways, but drivers and bikes riders need to obey the same set of laws. Not only do we have cars running reds lights, but we have cyclists doing the same thing. So, enforcing the laws we have in place would help to create safer roadways cars and bikes along more with bike lanes.

Yes. It’s better for traffic and the environment. 18%
No. The roads are too narrow in the city. 38%
