US Transportation Sec'y Ray LaHood says cyclists, well, are people too....

Here the Baltimore Sun reports on statements (radical statements to be sure) made by our US Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood. LaHood says in part that motor vehicles will not be given the overwhelming edge in federal transportation policy they've held these last 60 years.

Why, cyclists and walkers are part of the transport picture too!

All kidding aside, this is revolutionary stuff, incendiary stuff. We'll see if it's all just talk. I'm keeping my fingers crossed meanwhile.

I'm counting on him meaning it when the rubber meets the road. But this is more than about building bike paths. Its about making sure our legal rights to ride our bikes are protected.
