Motorists more deserving than cyclists and the disabled

Daily Echo: Motorists more deserving than cyclists and the disabled Motorists more deserving than cyclists and the disabled

ONCE again we have to witness the money that is wasted by this council.

Why does the council feel the need to spend money on a disabled-friendly bus shelter which will benefit one or two people just like the new cycle route into town when the potholes still lay unrepaired?

Itchen Bridge does not need a cycle route but the roads that bring business to the city need repairing.

"Motorists more deserving than cyclists and the disabled"

For what reason? All the lives they don't end/ruin?

Give it a rest eh? The news has been filled with stupid and dangerous drivers causing havoc for years, why are they more entitled to the road?

Pathetic letter.

In the morning its common to see up to 200 riders on the Itchen Bridge, and 200 cars. The difference being that during rushhour the cars dont move.

Hardly one or two.

As for disability. I hope the writer never suffers the injustice of struggling with a wheelchair when they could just put in a decent access

I hope this writer never has to suffer a disability . Why shouldnt people with disabilities have some help, they like to be as independent as anyone else, why should they have to struggle when life can be made a little easier, grow up for goodness sake we're in the 21st century now

This is surely a joke.
Nobody with any sense could deny the easier access of wheelchairs onto buses. And only if expenditure on cycle ways was equivalent per capita to that on roads, could any reasonable discussion take place as to "more deserving" of the funding.
I think this writer has decided to put his tongue firmly in his cheek and attempt to set off the round of cars vs bikes arguments that frequently fill this paper's column inches.
