More designated bike lanes coming to San Jose, CA (War on Cars Watch)

More designated bike lanes are being developed in San Jose.

The City’s Department of Transportation plans to repave and install bike lanes on busy Meridian Avenue, between Curtner Avenue and Willow Street.
“It’s pretty dangerous, honestly,” he said. “The only other choice you have besides riding on the road is riding on the sidewalk, and that’s just not really safe at all.”

He welcomes any plan that would put more bike routes in San Jose.

“Downtown San Jose, they added bike lanes only a couple months ago. I wouldn’t be riding as much if I weren’t riding down there with the bike lanes,” he said.
