Tulane Study: Bike Lanes Lead To Cycling Surge

bikelanes

Tulane University says people are taking advantage of new bike lanes in New Orleans.

On South Carrollton Avenue, for example, Tulane researchers say more than three-times as many people bicycled there after one-mile bike lanes were added.

The study focusses on the amount of bicycle traffic during a ten-day period in September 2009 versus the same time period a year later, after the lanes were added.

Researchers also say the lanes encourage people to travel in the proper direction rather than against traffic.

    Alexandria has been adding bicycle lanes. As a rider myself I applaud them. I know it’s a headache for some businesses who have lost some convenient parking spots, but I think the good outweighs the bad. Now if Pineville would just get on board to doing something similar I would be ecstatic.

    com, but did you know they pay cash permanently quality reviews.
    Being able to work with a wide range of clamps at your fingertips is not hard
    to do because they are low-priced and easily available.
    It will be advantageous to highlight everything related to carpentry in and outside of school.
