Time to rethink bicycle lanes and safety proposals
Suggestions for bicycle based cities which have an extensive bike lane network.

Frank Didik, NYC, August 3, 2016 I have been riding my bicycle in New York City since I was a child. These days, I ride my bike an average of 10 miles per day. Nevertheless I am rather surprised that New York and most cities around the country are pushing bicycle's as a major mode of transportation. It seems so retro. Back in the 1960's, one would have expected flying cars and jetpacks, not bicycles, by now! Think about the Jetsons, Star Treck and other futuristic programs, predicting how life would be today. Besides being a bicycle rider, I have also designed and built bicycles, as well as solar, electric and human powered vehicles, I am certainly not anit-bike riding, however it is obvious that in a city environment, bike riders must ride responsibly and certain rules must be followed. Further, I think that though bike lanes are wonderful, there must also be a balance between bike lanes and motor vehicle roads so that the largest number of citizens benefit from the limited road resources.

Some observations that may have been overlooked regarding bicycle lanes:

  • Pollution, longer drive times, greater fuel consumption, and higher transportation costs. Yes an unexpected effect of bike lanes is to cause pollution, higher fuel consumption and higher transportation costs. As a result of many cities around the United States building bicycle lanes, at the expense of roads for cars, trucks and buses, the motor vehicle congestion level has increased. This has led to longer drive times, more local pollution, increased gasoline and diesel fuel consumption, frayed nerves and a loss in time of human resource productivity. Thus trucks, ambulances, busses and private cars now use more gasoline and diesel fuel, because the traffic is greater. Further, the traffic and the longer time it takes for transport of people, food and goods, has resulted in higher transport costs that are passed on to the consumer. Because of the restricted traffic flow, it also takes emergency vehicles, such as the police, ambulances and fire trucks longer to reach their destination. The population at large has not benefited from bike lanes.

  • Because bike lanes cause greater congestion in cities, they also cause critical services, such as fire trucks, police response time and ambulance response time to take be longer than before bike lanes were installed.

  •  Most riders are men under the age of 50. There are few people older than 50 who ride or take advantages of the bicycle lanes. Surprisingly, from my un-scientific observations, there are four men bike riders for every woman bike rider.

  • Since a relatively small percentage of the population uses and benefits from bicycle lanes, the question then comes up if the enormous financial investment in building bicycle lanes and thus contributing to added motor vehicle traffic actually benefits society?

  • Since bicycle lanes are built up at the expense of motor vehicle lanes, does the added pollution of the slowed down motor vehicle traffic actually cause more harm than good?

  • Bike riders ride for a variety of reasons. Some people ride to health or exercise, others to save money and yet others for speed in getting to a local destination, plus the ease of "parking" or chaining the bicycle to a sign post.

  • Only a few diehard bicyclists ride in the winter.

  • Bike riders rarely obey traffic rules or even follow bike rules.

  • Bike Rider Rage. We have all heard about road rage, but the fact is that bike rage may well be more prevalent then automobile road rage. It take a lot of human energy to build up speed with a bicycle, and bike riders rarely want to slow down for pedestrians or for that matter, dealing with important issues, such as right away. Here in New York City, I often see bike riders screaming at other bike riders, because they are going to slow, fast or whatever. Bike rage should be dealt with in the same manner as motor vehicle road rage. (This paragraph added May 26, 2017)

  • A curious side note is that I have noticed the lighter, and often times more expensive, the bicycle, the heavier the chain that is carried in order to secure it better. The light weight advantage of the bicycle seems to be lost with the heavier chain.

What is needed:

  • Enforcement of the traffic rules.

  • I have always been a believer that less government is better government, however it is obvious to me that there must be some way of identifying bike riders who break the law, cause accidents by reckless riding or who are actually involved in accidents. With this in mind, I advocate that bicycles be registered, similar to to the way that motor vehicles are registered with a unique identifying rear license plate. It is possible that various automated bike rental companies might object to this, but this is an important measure that assists in responsible. Registration is common in many countries.

  • Bicycles or perhaps the bicyclist, should be required to carry basic liability insurance, so to pay for damaged property or injured people, when the bike rider causes and accident. If the bike is insured, than anyone riding the bicycle would be insured. If the individual is insured, than any bicycle that the individual rode, would be insured.

  • Bicycles should be required to have minimal safety equipment including at minimum, rear brakes, front and rear electric lights, reflectors and a horn or bell to alert pedestrians and other vehicles in an emergency. Surprisingly, many bike riders think it is "hip" to have bicycles that are direct chain drive without any brakes whatsoever. To stop, one has to attempt to lock or backpedal. In an emergency, this method is very dangerous. Lights are essential for night riding so that vehicles and pedestrians can see the bicycle. It goes without saying that a horn or a bell is an important safety measure to alert pedestrians. This safety equipment would for one, lessen the chance of injury and accidents and property damage for other people and also limit the chance that the bicycle rider is injured. Obviously if injuries can be lowered by a measurable percentage, than ultimately, the cost of medical insurance for everyone would likewise be reduced by a certain amount. Thus bicycle safety measures is of broad civil importance.

  • Presently in the state of New York, only youngsters are required to wear bicycle helmets. This requirement should be extended to all people. Helmets should not have protruding lights or video cameras attached on the outside, that may breach the helmet in the event of an accident.

  • When a bicycle lane exists, a bike rider must be required to only ride in that lane and not ride in the motor vehicle lanes. This makes bike riding safer for the bicyclist, safer for the motorists and does not slow down motor vehicles.

  • A bicyclist should be required to stop at all red lights. If this rule is violated, a fine should be issued that is large enough to discourage abuse. This rule is very important for the safety of the bicyclist, motor vehicles and perhaps most importantly, pedestrians crossing the street. All too often, people crossing the street are endangered by bicyclists who do not stop for pedestrians, who are legally crossing a street. This abuse has to stop.

  • The use and existence of bike lanes must be reevaluated every year to determine if the bike lane is under used. If the bike lane does not have enough bicycle traffic, the bike lane should be removed. and the area opened for motor vehicle traffic again. An analysis should also be made to determine if a bike lane, even if it is well used, is slowing down even more people in motor vehicles, than the number of people using the said bicycle lane.

  • Recently automated bike rental racks have sprung up across the country, supported by various companies. These racks are very convenient, however the underlying concept is a business that charges, not a public service. With this in mind and for the safety of the community, such racks should never be placed directly in front of the entrance of any building. The reason is simple and that is that such racks blocks the entrances of buildings for residents getting out of cars or taxi's, such racks impede the quick deployment of ambulances and also impedes firemen in cases of fire emergencies. Another issue that has sprung up is the noise that is caused in residential neighborhoods when locking or securing the bicycle to the bike stand or when at night, the bicycle company "equalizes" the number of bikes in each rack. Such bike racks should only be placed in commercial areas or next to parks, and in such a way, that the entrance to commercial buildings or parks are not blocked.

APRIL 26, 2017 UPDATE: Three weeks ago, around 5PM, I was on Grand Street and the Bowery in Manhattan and I witnessed a bike rider who was riding his bike way to fast and then hit a pedestrian, who was a man about 65 years old, who was crossing the street. The man was not knocked down, however clearly he was bruised. Instead of stopping, the bike rider continued to ride to Christie Street and then momentarily stopped and looked back, and then quickly continued to shoot away. I unchained my own bike, but by the time I started to chase the hit and run biker, he had disappeared into the traffic. At 5PM, Grand Street was packed with people and the bike rider, who was a man in his mid 20's, could easily have killed someone. In the split second that the bike rider hit the pedestrian, I noticed that the bike did not seem to have hand brakes. This incident underscores the need for bikes to have a clearly visible registration number, and some sort of basic insurance so that such violators can be caught and if they cause injury or property damage, they can pay to correct the situation.

Thoughts by
Frank Didik
Random thoughts on science, business and society today.

What if and what can or might be.

Reason, Logic and intellect is not reliable. The late Christopher Hitchens often stated that we should rely on our logic, reason and intellect to determine the truth. Many people who pride themselves as educated, intelligent and progressive believe the same. As reasonable as this seems, Galileo proved over 400 years ago that our logic, reason and intellect is unreliable and that only direct experimental data, should be relied upon. Galileo had dropped two balls of the same material, but different masses, from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to demonstrate that they would hit the ground at the same time, rather than the heavier ball hitting the ground first, as almost everyone, including Aristotle, 2000 years ago, had assumed. Our logic, reason and intellect is not reliable and should only be viewed as speculation. Only direct experimentation and obtaining the same results, over and over again should be relied upon.

Self Driving Cars? If you have an accident with a self driving car, who is at fault? The car manufacturer, the owner of the car or the occupant "driver" of the car?

What is the speed of gravity? If it is instantaneous, then what if gravity can be modulated? Today most scientists, assume that the speed of gravity is the same as the speed of light, but what if the speed of gravity is instantaneous? Further, if gravity can be modulated, it might allow for instantaneous universal communication. Thus it might be possible to communicate with space craft instantly, rather than waiting for minutes for transmissions to reach the craft or earth. Perhaps computer chips can be made to operate vastly faster. And this is just the beginning since ...read more ...

The playgrounds are empty but the dog runs are full. No children, only dogs. I have noticed that in New York City, the playgrounds are empty but the dog runs are full. People are no longer getting married, and having families. Where will this all lead to? When I was a child growing up in NYC, there were children everywhere and the stores catered to families, rather than individual single people. The best boutiques along Madison Avenue on Manhattan's upper east side, always had play areas for the children, so that the children could play, while the mothers shopped. We children knew which stores had the best toys and demanded to go to those stores, which in most cases, were the most expensive stores!

This website displays designs, projects, proposals and innovations by Frank Didik, but this site has also served to inspire people to bring their ideas to fruition. All too often, people have great dreams in high school and college but within a few years after graduation, these ideas gradually become a distant memory. I encourage everyone to do what ever you are good at and try to make your dreams a reality. What people do today represents the future of our great planet. Go out and do whatever you can do, to the best of your ability.

Question: If people who are protesting are paid to protest, is it really a protest?

Question: If a charity receives most or all of its money from the government, is it really a charity considering that the tax payer is paying for their services? If a humanitarian organization is paid for their services, are they really a humanitarian organization?

Questioning the results of modern science. For the last 100 years, we have been experiencing the collapse of real science. Theories, speculation and fantasy is the norm today. By definition, the scientific method is the ability to test and re-test and always get the same results, over and over. If an idea or a theory can not be tested, the idea must be viewed as speculation and not considered true, till that idea is proven without a doubt. Scientific theory has moved to areas that are beyond our present capability of testing and gradually a number of unproven theories have become accepted as fact without any real proof. Further, new theories have been developed based on old theories. Thus we have a situation where science today is largely based on theory upon theory. If something can not be proven, it falls into the realm of philosophy rather than science. This has led to...read more ...

Science and media hype: Any sudden "revolutionary" scientific discovery, even if such discovery is written about in every newspaper and scientific journal, should be greeted with skepticism. Such a discovery should only be accepted after the bulk of scientists have have had a chance to review the discovery and confirm that it is in fact correct. Such things that come to mind include cold fusion, the so called "God Particle" and even the recent stated discovery of a "gravitational wave".

WEAK STUDENTS: I have long believed that in a classroom environment, the weak student holds the better students back. The idea of putting a weak student with better students is a disservice to both the weak as well as the better students.

-------------------------------

ON TEACHING: I feel that it is not possible to teach a person to be creative or a good businessman and the same applies to many other fields. You can only expose that person to what has already been done and the current understanding of the tools and materials of the trade and perhaps with this understanding, the student can expand upon this knowledge.

-------------------------------

ON LEARNING: My view is that almost all learning is through observation and questioning. This underscores the importance of parents to teach their children and expose their children to the parents daily lives. In today's society, most parents are forced to work and thus the child has only limited exposure to the richness of the parents understanding of things. I would also argue that when a parent is walking with a child, that the parent should not be using their cell phone or texting and instead be devoting their full attention to the child. Schools, as they exist today, have a limited ability to truly train/educate a student and most of what is taught to the student is repeated over and over with little practical use for the student after graduation. So many students today study for years and yet after graduation, never use what they have learned or what they have learned is of little relevance to their lives.

-------------------------------

Wisdom: I believe that wisdom can not be taught, but rather wisdom is a unique gift of understanding that a person is born with.
