I hope these comments are all read, I have seen almost all the points I would list already up here by like-minded individuals
952Jen Bloss
Who takes away a lane of traffic in the city for a bike lane. I can see if they expanded the roads to do it. Terrible decision making. You just created a danger zone. Congest traffic more and add cyclists to it. Smart I tell you.
953Lindsay Taylot
waste of money
954Beth Garn
ridiculous idea, some poor cyclist will be severely hurt or killed.
955Gwen Werbiski
$750,000 on bike lanes? Seriously? Wow, now we can finally ride our bicycles. Sure beats digging out the dandelions in our lawn or digging out our vehicles from the city streets...
956Michelle Bazylinski
I agree with the bike paths on single streets that are wide enough to accommodate them but taking up lanes of traffic in areas that are already congested is just an accident waiting to happen. I will pay the fine before I will allow my son to ride on them.
957Alisha Koenig
Get rid of them, not worth the time or money!
958Susan McElroy
Stupid & dangerous! Who cuts traffic lanes in half in a growing city? How are emergency vehicles supposed to get through now that there is only one lane each way? Are children & parents towing baby carts expected to ride that close to traffic? Shameful!
959Wayne Russell
QUESTION: If an emergency vehicle comes up behind you with lights and siren on are you allowed to move over into the bike lane to allow them to pass or do they have to head out into oncoming traffic ?
960Tracey Bernard
I do not support the bike lanes on 39 St, 40 Ave & 52 St!

I do not support the new bike lanes as a cyclist and a driver. It's hazardous and I think people need to learn to share the sidewalk or widen them

The bike lanes are a waste of money. $800,000 WASTED... Boo City of Red Deer... No one is impressed.. not even the bikers.
966Steven johnson
I believe the new bike lanes in Red Deer ( 39th and 40th ave mostly) puts motorist and pedestrians at greater risk for accidents. Please do more research before implementing such a change.
967Eloise Thesen
Absolutely the most ridiculous decision I've seen Red deer make...so dangerous...I know my kids won't be using them!!
968Charla Van Seggelen
It is completely ridiculous to take a traffic lane away when our city is getting bigger!!
969Wayne
Hey! Look at the positive side. When the first snowfall comes, as long as one of the bikers complains we will be getting our streets cleaned. Well at least the bike lane part..
970Helen - Ironside Street
Where are all the bicycles that these preposterous lanes were created for?? I haven't seen one on them ever! Waste of money, now have the common sense to reverse your decision. I forsee someone getting injured or killed and lawsuits to follow.
971Carol
Lost much needed driving lanes, useless when winter comes and turning right is scary as hell when you have no choice but to cross them. Money would be better spent on clearing streets in the winter.
972kiara simoneau
973Angie Judson
Remove the lanes along all of 55th street and 40th ave and 39th street. These are such a disgrace in planning.
974Lyle Richards
I disagree with this petition and as a user of these lanes I am finding the radio station campian dangerous as people are now starting to honk and crowd lanes. Hey its ok to disagree but when things get out of hand its time to cool it down a bit.
975camille gaudek
These bike lanes are terrible, they are barely used and take up more traffic lanes which we need so we will be less congested amd less likely to get in an accident, they are stupid for the reason that they are.only.used 6 months at a time.
976Aaron Lucas
Larger population. More cars on the road. Less traffic lanes? Way to go Morris you have managed to slow traffic even more then our hundreds off stop lights already do.
977Janice L
Today as I was stuck in the one lane traffic because of the bike lanes I looked over and saw a cyclist...on the sidewalk. I think that says it all.
978Jessie Handley
As a 13 year old, i bike everywhere... but i would never use the bike lanes, they are unsafe with all the crazy and distracted drivers around. it makes going to school everyday hard because of all the single lane roads now.
979Maria Pelrine
New drivers have enough to worry about let alone bike lanes taking up traffic lanes that used to be here...the money could of been used in better places like maybe snow removal...what a concept
980Nicky
Seems like a lot of money and inconvinence to a larger population than benefit to a very small population if any.
981Tanya Mullakady
Dangerous & expensive decision
982Sue
Thinks the city should have done a little more research before throwing away our money. Dissapointed.
983Laurette Woodward
I drive past the lanes daily. Over the past few weeks I've only seen one biker. Maybe you think 'build it and they will come'? Not sure. a. Winter lasts too long. b. I wouldn't feel safe in those lanes. c. And they are NOT convenient if you've got kids.
984Mark Sorensen
Waist of time
985Tony
Its congested traffic significantly, and I have yet to see a cyclist use the bike lanes.
986Mike.
I am driving in these areas daily and as of Sept.10/12.Very poor turnout/use. There is too much FANTASY spending. I viewed 100-200 vehiclies and 3 bikes in my useage of the roads since change. Tax waste=council resign. Safety??? 55th Holy Crap.
987Tyler Wheeler
988Stacy Johnston
City council made a huge mistake approving the pilot project. They continue to waste tax payers money. The outdoor gyms you drive by throughout the city with nobody using them is another good example.
989Ashley Davey
I take my brother to St Thomas School with the one lane traffic is so congested also I have yet to see someone use the lanes. I myself have a bike I ride and let me tell you with the crazy drivers out in this world you will never see me using the bike lanes

3/4 of a million on a pilot project, goodness my lord
992mike oxlong
FUUUCCCKKKK THAT
993Doug Smith
Wow Lyle Richards you must be the same 0.102% that use the bike lanes. Well I would like to see my money better spent.
994Donna McCrimmon
Bad idea
995Travis lucas
I think red deer is capable of better.
996bonnie lucas
I refuse to ride my bike until these bike lanes are gone so I'm not associated with the ones who support these terrible ideas
997Monica Johnston
I think this was very poorly thought out - rather NOT thought out at all. When someone is killed or badly injured - council idiots you can thank yourselves!!
998Shelby y
There are sidewalks and bike trails for a reason, why spend money on bike lanes just to waste money already spent.
999Brian
Good concept, poor execution. Wait till there is a fender bender in the winter downtown. This is a dangerous and poorly designed 'solution' to keeping Red Deer green. Try again City Council

The bike lanes do nothing but back up traffic, in a city with bike paths and sidewalks. Also bikers are more at risk with heavy vehicle at high speeds moving beside them.
