Some seemingly misinformed person is apparently sending negative/attack messages to associates of CABO. See below. The message seems transparently silly considering CABOs record of protecting our right to ride un-“marginalized.”

 

I have warned Samantha Olinger, vice chair of the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, who uses sollinger @gmail.com as her email, that her name/email address had apparently been high-jacked.

Hi,


Is The ____ snip ____ Club  still a part of CABO? Seeing as CABO seems to exist to only jeopardize cyclists' rights and marginalize us, I am wondering if you are still a member organization and how I can convince you to leave.

Sincerely,
Samantha

That anti-CABO meme has most recently been rather vehemently expressed by Ted Rogers (@bikinginla) of LACBC in his blog.  This note is consistent with the feelings expressed in comments Samantha posted in the CABO forum, so I wouldn't assume an account hijacking.

Ground zero for the CABO hate is probably this Wednesday Streetsblog San Francisco post, especially in the comments:

Does anyone have a video of a right hook to post on this blog?

Here's a video from Chicago:  http://www.treehugger.com/bikes/hurrah-chicagos-first-protected-bike-lane-video.html 
I believe that's the same sidepath shown in the SF Streetsblog post.  The video shows several near-misses.

Note that there is nothing preventing NACTO-style designs, or sloppy variations of current standards, in California.  It’s already de facto practice.
