CAR, the Coalition for Adequate Review, fights against more bike lanes
There is an excellent bike plan in the works for San Francisco by city planners which will add thirty miles or more of bike lanes in the City.
However, CAR, has been fighting the plan based on inadequate environmental review of the plan: "Rob Anderson, the citizen behind the lawsuit, said the city catered to a vocal minority of bicyclists without sufficiently studying effects on the driving public and merchants who want convenient parking for their customers."

The question is whether to cut 7 or 70 trees.
It looks like the ever changing plans for widening bike lanes on Sir Francis Drake blvd. near Samuel P. Taylor Park is going to be a big hassle.
