Karole Sutherland writes from Spain:
We are visiting Salamanca, Spain and I couldn’t help admiring the clear demarcation of the bike and walking paths here. So much better than Vancouver’s oh-so-subtle signage mounted about 4 meters high on sign posts or via the occasional glyph on the pathway.
We live in Coal Harbour and watch the chaos as tourists take the wrong turn along the seawall – either as cyclists on the walking path or stroll down the bike path. It’s mayhem and for the most part, it’s because it’s not easy to figure out where you are supposed to be unless you live in Vancouver and know the secret handshake.
I don’t know the population of Salamanca but it’s nowhere close to Vancouver. So why can’t we do something smart like this and make it clear for everyone?
