Letter: How Richmond-San Rafael Bridge bike lane will slow traffic

Stalls may spell huge traffic
jams with bridge bike lane

Reading your article “Richmond-San Rafael Bridge bike lane barrier installation begins” (, Oct. 2) gave me the distinct feeling that the bike lane is an experiment designed to fail.

I’m one of the 80,000 guinea pigs that use the bridge daily. I regularly see cars stalled out on the shoulder.

Once the barrier is up, we will be down to one west-bound lane every time somebody runs out of gas. It will take hours to cross, even for emergency vehicles.

All so that a few dozen people can cycle to work. Only a mad scientist would accept that trade off.
