The Atlanta Public Works Department is set to proceed with the East Wesley Road traffic calming project.

This includes the removal of 5 feet of paved shoulder from each side of the street, resulting in a road too narrow to safely accomodate both bike and vehicle traffic.

It is against the law for bicyclists in Atlanta to ride on city sidewalks.

This "traffic calming" project is making a lot of people very nervous.

Its funny because it is really easy to create a bike lane separated by Botts Dots to effectively reduce the width of the roadway (and slowing traffic down) while making it safer for bicycles then the existing roadway. I don't understand why the Atlanta region is so against alternative means of transportation.
