Reader Mail: I quit the bike lanes!
Hoboken411 reader Scott shares his experiences with the new Bike Lanes in Hoboken…
Not worth it at all
“I have to admit that I was a bit excited when the bike lanes were painted in Hoboken. I normally took Garden St. downtown to the PATH, but decided to be a good citizen and go a few blocks out of my way to utilize the new, supposedly safer bike lanes. But I give up. Each day I pedal down Grand, there are tons of double parked cars, weaving in and out, that I almost got hit the other day (and is why I’m writing). Until the city completely cracks down on the offending cars and SUV’s, I’ll continue taking my old route downtown.”
