Letters to the Editor: Ban bicycles during rush hour [Cinci]

In response the letter “Drivers and cyclists must make peace” (Sept. 24). I have a suggestion to at least make things better, as there is no perfect fix. I propose making it law that bicyclists be excluded from riding on streets during the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. each weekday morning and from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. each weekday evening. While I realize this can be a burden to the cyclists, I believe there are more drivers than cyclists and we have a right to be able to get to work on time and to be able to get home in a timely manner after working hard for 8 to 10 hours a day. I know that my road rage knows no bounds after driving up Cornell Road and having to drive 10 miles an hour because cyclists can’t go any faster up hill and there is too much traffic to get around them and I am trying to get home after work.
