Bicycle paths

Resident questions the City of Vernon's investment in a bicycle network

So Vernon city hall wants an added tax on gasoline for more bicycle paths. Why?

It was recently Cycle to Work Week. While eating my meals overlooking Allenby Way on Tuesday and Wednesday, I saw four bicycles. Is this what I gave up my on-street parking for?

Here’s an idea. Automobiles are licensed so why not license bicycles?

Not only will it mean the cyclists would help to pay for said paths, it would stop them from free-loading on motorists the way they have done for so many years.
