Cyclists can't do anything right. We go on the sidewalk, we're told it's too dangerous and to go on the road. We go on the road, we're called assholes and told to go on the sidewalk. Drivers complain about us on the road, but hate when they add bike lanes.

You haven't known pain until you're stuck behind 40 of these chumps in a swarm taking up the whole lane on a busy road. I've never seen them on a city road or anything, but I've seen them on busy roads in the countryside between towns. It happens.

i swear everyone in netherlands rides like this, complete disregard for obstacles, human or otherwise and always at max speed. in my cunt there are no paths and cyclists live in absolute fear of the chagies who will not hesitate to run you over in order to avoid scratches and dents on their cars.

it's not better necesarily, but the few cyclists that exist have way more common sense and are safer and better riders

I once had a guy in a ford expedition yell at me for not signaling a lane change (there was a cage blocking the right lane and I was going at roughly the same speed as the other vehicles but apparently cageoids lose their ability to infer the likely maneuvers of vehicles around them when those vehicles weigh less than 7,500 pounds)

Should the Port Authority consider the development of a railway/subway line from New Jersey to Staten Island?
Everyone knows that Staten Island is the bumhole of NYC transit, having one heavy rail line that runs worse headways during off-peak than any 24h Subway line during the night. That even includes the Rockaway Park shuttle whose five stops are among the nine least used on the entire network according to 2014-2019 figures.
Now every half assed transit enthusiast knows that Staten Island once had a line going from St. George along the north coast of the borough. The continuation of that line is now a cargo rail line into New Jersey. This provides two opportunities
>A rail line along the existing right of way to Elizabeth and Newark, providing direct rail service to Newark Airport and potentially midtown Manhattan
>A subway (PATH) or light rail (in collaboration with NJ Transit) line that crosses the state border over the Kill van Kull and then uses the existing right of way at Port Richmond
All three options will need at least a 3 mile long tunnel to reconnect St. George with the elevated section at Port Richmond. The rail line option would need a connector to the Northeast Corridor line at Elizabeth Port, while both the subway and light rail options would need a bridge or tunnel to cross the river. And of course the Subway would need a major extension project across Hudson County.
How realistic would such a project be, and do you think it would be reasonable or maybe even needed? Also I am not an American so I don't have expert knowledge on all the different parties required to make such a project happen so feedback would be welcome in that regard.

I think any of these proposals would be preferable, to instating the entirety of ex-Jersey as a borough, I do like these.
Either the northmost border or the one under it would get my vote. If going with the northmost, I'd guess formerly-Oradell and formerly-New Milford would form a new township, or be absorbed into Dumont. A bit messy, so maybe the Teaneck/Englewood border would be better.

1. Make buses quicker with dedicated lanes
2. Make it free of charge
3. Install public showers at bus stations
4. Make Tesla owners pay for it
It's not either/or with this too. No dedicated lanes and you're stuck in traffic, if it's paid by fares then there's friction slowing things down, if there aren't showers like there are for truck stops then people will smell (usually homeless) passengers, and Tesla owners not paying gives them a free rider position not having to deal with as much traffic as they destroy the roads with their extra heavy cars.

The only thing wrong with that image is that it uses a bowden cable instead of rigid rods.

Are you acting dumb on purpose ?
It IS an electric motorcycle. They are plenty and plenty cheap. Just accept it as that, stop pretend its anything different and do not use it where motorvehicles are not allowed or welcome. Also behave in general. Sadly motorists have to be explicitly told the later.

>>1980642
I get this is mostly bait but because this place is so pants on head retarded.
I don't think anyone actually thinks an electric bike is more than just a good investment compared to a only pedal bike. As others have stated a reasonable use case for getting to/from work where you might not want to pedal or suit up for proper areo or just combat the environmental conditions.

Virtually everyone I've talked to with an ebike simply wants one because it negates the need for registration+expensive registration+maintenance of a bike, and finally because they don't go far enough on average to justify an investment like a 50cc bike. Most states require a specialized motorcycle course and drivers license for one, so that's not really worth it compared to that of an electric bike that caps out at 25mph.

Thinking that it's a competition between ebikes and regular bikes is fucking stupid.

Germoney looks the same (at least in rural areas).

try again, only 99 years off

It disgusts me how today's so-called "cycling activists" are doing the work of the automotive lobby while thinking that they're the good guys.

Imagine if a bunch of politicians started pushing for a special residential area for a certain group, after having them habitually assaulted with weapons for many years. "We're terribly sorry about all the bloodshed but can't guarantee your safety, if you want to be safe, you have to go in this special place we designated for you".

That is what bike lanes are. We've tried "separate but equal". It doesn't work, because tyranny of the majority means a highly flexible definition of "equal".

People who have been riding bikes for many decades know what the game is. But zoomers and corona cyclists believe they know best. Instead of demanding justice, they demand segregation. Which is exactly what the automotive supremacists want.

I wonder, would "urbanists" be willing to self-immolate in a gruesome public spectacle, as part of a social agreement to get rid of the cages? Like we could put them all in yankee stadium during the off season (whenever that is, desu not sure the rules on sportsball), hand them each a little 20 oz bottle full of gasoline and the NJB logo on it, and a zippo, and stream it all on pay per view?

sound is just one issue, though. how do motherfuckers not FEEL the fucking train coming up behind them? I live 100yds within line of sight of a daily used rail crossing (pic semi-related, the blue was nicer. their new scheme sucks) and not only can I hear the fucking horns through noise canceling headphones in a concrete building, but the entire building shakes when the diesels go by. my plants in the back room start vibrating. you gotta be completely out of it to not sense something that weighs 150 tons approaching you at cruising speeds.
>>
>>1980202
shaking is also variable and depends on flat spots, tamping, the head of the rail, etc.
perfectly round wheels and perfect welded track would have no vibrations at all.
i'm not trying to say you can't detect a train coming, but factor in how hard it is to feel gorund vibrations when walking on ballast, the possibility of being in a loud or breezy environment, and having a false sense of security from maybe not seeing trains all the time and it can be difficult to know you are going to get hit.
train crews can also have a hard time seeing the person. we sit so high we are looking at a small object in contrast with the dark rail, light ties, and gravel, often at night. a drunk dude passed out on the tracks looks exactly like a trash bag until just before you hit him and we see things and animals on the tracks all the time so there isn't anything a train crew can do about it

good news is you can't get hit by the train unless you are standing in a very specific ten foot wide lane, so just walk to the side lmao
>>
One of the more common reasons I see for people "coming into contact with trains" by accident is that there's already ANOTHER train passing on a separate track which covers the noise and vibration of the second approaching train which hits them. There are lots of videos in which this happens or almost happens. The other pretty typical thing that happens is people don't realize that the train extends outside of the rails by some distance, so they stand right next to the rail thinking they're safe. Lots of videos of nasty things happening to people because of this. Of course, there are also cases where no one will ever know for sure if it was suicide or just someone with no situational awareness at all.
