[Cyclelicious] New comment on Dear Abby says "GET OFF THE ROAD".

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Dear Abby says "GET OFF THE ROAD"":

Abby's logic is flawed. Her advice goes in the wrong direction. Why should bikers "wait" until something is done? Does democracy ever work like that? My experience with community governments characterizes them as primarily reactive institutions funding the needs and wants of people. What better way for car drivers to be aware of bike rights than for them to bike once a week. What better way to earn community funding for bike programs than to get more people out in numbers on bikes. Crowd the roads I say until elected officials figure out (while stuck in their cars behind a critical mass bike rally ideally)..."wow there are alot of voters on bikes, maybe we should do some more bike related programs". Millions are spent in road development and repair supporting car culture. Why can't more bikes demand the same?

P.s. I tried the link and it failed to work...thus I'm ranting in the comments ;).
