More bikeways or more highways?

CALTRANS is in the BUSINESS of building ROADS and therefore they shy away from spending BIG BUCK$ on "personal mobility" since that does not benefit those BIG Companies that construct them. I say "<b>personal mobility</b>" because using the term "bicycle" or "bikeway" is elitist since it does not allow for the use of these routes by those that cannot ride a manually powered bike. The handicapped, and many other commuters will be using electric powered "<b>personal mobility</b>" eVehicles (that may very well include eBicycles) in the near future in ever increasing numbers, so for CALTRANS to say on one hand they are planing San Diego Forward and to actually NOT be planning for what will certainly be a major form of transportation defies logic. CALTRANS has been build roadways for decades and their track records clearly illustrates that by the time they do get additional capacity built, it is time to build more. This must stop and now is the time to re-define CALTRANS mission to better reflect what is needed in the future, if San Diego is to improve its transportation corridors. We need to start building "<b>personal mobility</b>" ways now and then in several years decide where to build even more, that way we can provide for all those that will be using <b>personal mobility</b> instead of their gasoline powered vehicles to commute in San Diego! BTW: Jack Shu should be on the SANDAG BOARD since he is not yet another local leader that rubber stamps ever more road construction because it is good for ever more donations...
