A video and footage emerged this morning exhibiting Beirut Mayor Jamal Itani biking to the municipality’s constructing in Beirut. It’s a pleasant publicity stunt after all however I’ve two feedback:
1- The video is exhibiting him biking proper subsequent to the municipality. Why didn’t they make it a bit longer to indicate that he’s biking from his home?
2- Why isn’t he utilizing the bike lane that was launched not too long ago?
On one other notice, I’ve seen already vehicles and scooters driving over the bike lane within the final couple of weeks so it doesn’t appear like it’s gonna work out until municipal policemen are deployed to maintain the lane clear and that bikers finally begin utilizing it.
In all instances, let’s hope issues enhance with time and Beirut does turn into a bike-friendly metropolis as a result of it’s actually not that arduous to attain.
