Statement by Cindy Stover
I live on Cannon Street, and also bike to work. Bike lanes are extremely important to me both because of accessibility for my chosen mode of transportation, (as I don't feel safe biking on Cannon as it is), and for traffic calming in the area. The 3 lanes make the traffic too fast (even with a streetlight only a block away, cars speed up very quickly), and the noise is loud enough to wake up people whose bedrooms face the street. I believe that bike lanes will help calm the traffic by having a visible reminder of needing to share the road, and will also make my commute to work much safer.
