3051Amber latreille
they are a waste, will not be utilized and take up needed space for traffic. A waste of my taxe dollars
3052Greg Stan
City Council is out of touch. Vote them all out next time. They should be working on ways to find more money for snow removal. A real problem in red deer. Red Deer is growing we need more traffic lanes not less!!! I must be a nightmare down by LTHS
3053Greg Stan
Correction: traffic must be a nightmare down by LTHS
3054Sydney Stan
Absolute waste of money, they should be spending it on snow removal not painting roads so bikers can only bike 5 months out of the year. Bike lanes isnt worth the heavy traffic caused by it
3055Morgan See
800,000 for maybe 4 months, good job looks like you all know what your doing. Snow removal would have been a much better idea but like I said city council knows what their doing.
3056Donna
we do not need the bike lanes at all. saw some guys stunting on them
3057P. Jamieson
Ill-conceived Plan at the expense of many. Money Wasted C. Jefferies likes to talk about people not liking change well come election day I'll be happy to help change some counsel names,vote for counsel that cares about all of Red Deer not just a select
few
3058C Matechuk
This was ridiculus and an absolute waiste of money. I have been an avid bike rider and and see nothing gained but creating dangerous traffic congestion.
3059Janzen
take the same amount of money and send it on the bike paths. then we will have safe roads and safe bike paths
3060lloyd johnson
Waste of money to implement a hazardous plan.
3061Gordon
So the way I read it, they are removing them from 55th Street but not from 40th Avenue and 39th Street in front of the Eastview school. We have to keep fighting until these are gone too.
3062Jamie Paul
Waste of money, the city should be spending money on repairing the existing roads.
3063heather corney
i have 4 young children and i keep getting people to tell me that my children should be on the road using the bike lanes. i dont drive and so as a family we bike eveywhere but the bike lanes are not safe cars dont slow down and turn in front of us without
3064heather corney
sorry ran out of room the drivers dont look for poeple on the side walks trying to cross what makes anyone think that they are looking for bikes on the road next to them!!
3065Chris Ball
These lanes are an accident waiting to happen. the initial roads were not designed to have these lanes allocated. I have not seen any bikes riding in these lanes as of yet. Put some money into existing roads and bike paths.
3066Sherry
we are looking at a lot of injuries or deaths
3067fred
wat a total waste of the tax payers money, these streets are a accident waiting for a place to happen, not to mention a lawsuit waiting to take place at city hall, witch would look good on them for creating this mess total waste of money, 8yr old kid got
3068Nick Flanders
Our streets are covered in snow half of the year anyways so we would not be able even tell there is a bike lane, spend this money on snow removal instead, we need the road way, for our rapidly growing city
3069Ann
I am all for exercise but I think this is a waste of money that could have been spent else where!!! I am also somewhat offended that there was not a poll with the residents of Red Deer. TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY and all cause there is a councillor that bikes
3070val johnson
3071Roger north
3072Rick
5 longboarders going down 55st hill!In the bikelane?Now they have bikelanes,could they enact a bylaw to force the cyclists to use them?
To get them off the sidewalks.
3073Garry VanderBaaren
I'm amazed that the city could not see ahead of time the obvious problems with THEIR plan. Seems they had their own agenda and lack ability for not seeing problems that could have been predicted without money spent. Now more money wasted on changes :-(
3074Blake Vickery
This is ridiculous!! You want to spend money on something? PLOW the damn streets in the winter!!!! I am not sure if the mayer spends to much time in palm springs but we have nice weather 4 months in the year, i have seen them used 2 times? Unreal!!
3075Brent Leptich
A Mother and her 2 Kids were on 39st bike lane going East. Because of the extended corner curbs (another GREAT idea), they had to swing left into traffic or jump the curb. A car following them nearly caused a head on with a west bound car. Nearly Fatal.
3076June Scott
I feel the bike lanes are very dangerous. Someone is going to get hurt or maybe even killed on them. They hold up traffic and some people in a hurry are not as careful and the slow traffic just makes them very irate. They are a waste of money.
3077Quintin
Taking away traffic lanes in already congested areas makes no sense. Especially when we have winter for 7 months of the year and its impossible to ride your bike anyway. Not very well thought out!
3078Heathere Gallipeau
you should have planned better where to put them!and let us know you were doing it before u did it!
3079Suzanne Price
We have excellent bike paths in this city for the bikers to use without adding bike lanes to congested streets taking away much needed traffic lanes this only endangers bike riders and drivers alike
3080JOY SCOTT
DUE TO THE BIKE PATHS THE LIGHTS AT 59TH AND 67TH HEADING NORTH TO THE DAWE I NOW HAVE TO SIT THROUGH 3-5 LIGHTS BEFORE I CAN PROCEED DOWN 59TH THIS IS A PAIN IN THE BUTT THE LIGHT IS NOT LONG ENOUGH. REMOVE THESE STUPID PATHS THEY ARE AN EXPENSIVE HAZARD
3081Tim
Lived in Red Deer for 8 years, in that time I have seen a significant increase in traffic congestion which is only going to get worse in next decade. Council must concern itself more about efficiencies in traffic flow, not closing lanes for a select few.
3082Taxpayer
How do we fire these people NOW ???? Anyone know the procedure ???
3083tom karashowsky
WTF is the matter with your heads. bring back interment camps....Hitler was right, get rid of the imbusuls for good... i,ll light the ovens now...
3084Patrick Hare
Bike lanes are a joke. Mayor, City Council and
city planners are also a joke. Traffic a mess for a few bikes.
3085Ashley Long
Lets get them changed before another city bus hits a pedestrian and the mayor only offers to buy them a new bike!
3086Keera Rousseau
3087Karen Carter
Progress? I have lived in Red Deer as a home owner for 32 years which means TAX PAYER and this is what you do with our money?? Progress in a growing city mean more DRIVING lanes are required. We have awesome bike paths which are just fine.
3088Lorraine Grover
I travel 40 Ave,32 St to Spruce dr. 4 times a day. Since Aug. 14/12 I have seen 4 people in the bike lanes. I'd like a refund on my taxes please as this was a reallllllly bad decision. Paul Harris obviously has lots of pull!!!
3089Susan Derbyshire
I would like to see the bike lanes changed back to lanes. We have alot of bike paths in the city.
3090Wayne
Still waiting for the big announcement that bikes need to be registered and insured in order to be on the street with other vehicles.
3091Gary
Bike lanes make sense in Amsterdam and Tokyo where ~1/4 of the people go to work on bicycles. In Red Deer, where we have 6 months of blizzards it is rediculous. Which councillors wet dream was this? Where is the Mayor? Someone should be held accountable!
3092JOY SCOTT
IN REGARDS TO COMMENT 3080 i MEANT GOING SOUTH GOING THROUGH THE LIGHTS . PLEASE REMEMBER THESE COUNCILLORS NAMES AND VOTE THEM OUT FOR THEIR WASTE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS
3093Linda Baggaley
I have only seen one person, yes one
person riding in a bike lane all summer.And the loss of lanes, parking, etc , without proper imput from Red Deer Tax Payers is most upsetting . And yes I agree re insurance, and licensing, and being accountable for brea
3094Denton
Make the bikers pay a road tax. We have to pay for road Tax in our fuel cost. Get rid of them!!!!!
3095Mike
Put tax dollars in to more useful things like fixing the roads or finishing the geatz bridge
3096Woody
I have a better plan. Does anyone know where a guy can buy a couple of buckets of tar and a couple of sacks of feathers ?
3097sharon hausch
3098Laura Jahraus
This is the worst idea that the City Of Red Deer came up with, especially not letting us decide. I am truly disappointed to see the waste of our tax money Finally,Red Deer roads are not so safe anymore.What a mess!!!
3099Rob chapdelaine
Thx for wasting my tax money red deer.
3100Marlene Allsen
