There is certainly a need for a major overhall of the policies and practices in Berkeley which hurt nonmotorized travelers (including but not limited to people who use wheelchairs, pedestrians, transit users, and bicyclists).
Many of the ideas in this ordinance have been implemented, to varying degrees, on a local, state and even national level. At some point the community should consider whether to do a better, more long-term job of proposing real solutions (perhaps in an ordinance form) to the injustices which exist.
