Making Glendale bike-friendly is a great idea (“Bike-friendly road plan progressing,” Jan. 28). The only problem is that creating bicycle lanes on city streets does not make bicycling safe.
Glenoaks has had bike lanes for years, but I would be afraid to use those lanes for the fear of being run down by a driver who is texting. As often as I have driven along Glenoaks, I have very rarely seen bicyclists in those designated lanes.
The only safe bike lane would be one that is totally separated from automobiles.
