Bike and Pedestrian Safety Position Draws Controversy in Minneapolis

Posted on August 7, 2012

The city of Minneapolis, Minnesota has created a position for a bicycle and pedestrian safety coordinator, but the move has garnered its share of controversy.  Many people are upset that such a position has been put in place at all, given cutbacks in other parts of the government.  These cutbacks include fire department layoffs.  The Mayor, though, says that such a position is vital if the city wants to sustain a reputation of being safety-conscious to bicyclists.  The coordinator does not wear a helmet when he rides his own bike.  This is done in the hope that bike riding isn’t viewed by citizens as being hazardous.
