DoT's equivalent of Michelle's Starvation Diet for School Kids

In NYC and Washington, DC where traffic is already unbearable they are making it near- impossible. Elizabeth Harrington of the Daily Caller writes:

The Department of Transportation (DOT) released an action plan last week, detailing its plans to give local communities “road diets,” or turning driving lanes into bike lanes and pedestrian crossings.

“The new pedestrian and bicycle safety initiative will promote design improvements to ensure safe and efficient routes for pedestrians and bicycles, promote behavioral safety, and provide education to help individuals make safer travel choices,” the agency announced in a press release.

“Among the many resources the Department will provide will be a guide to creating ‘road diets,’ in which roadways with lower traffic volumes are redesigned to add space for bicycle riders and pedestrians,” they said. “ Studies show that road diets reduce all traffic crashes by an average of 29 percent, and when used on rural highways that pass through small towns, they can reduce crashes by almost half.”

The announcement was accompanied by a report on how the government will increase walking and biking, calling it an issue of “equality.”

Of course we all know these people 's utopia is to have us all living in cities in large apt complexes forced to use public transport where we'll all be easier to control.
