I'm a father and a tea-drinking, boogie-boarding, guitar-pickin' entrepreneur.
With 270 people moving into the Lowcountry every day, the last thing that motorists need are less lanes of traffic. Sadly, the wants of the few are trumping the needs of the many. This is a colossal waste of resources. If cyclists want to ride from the suburbs into Charleston, they should move to Mt Pleasant and take the Ravenel Bridge. As for the Greenway, it should have never been paved. It was perfectly fine to navigate on most bicycles. Of course the sensitive $2,000+ dollar racing bikes require pristine asphalt but those people are the minority of bike owners. What's next? Should Charleston build a 12% grade along 20 miles of road so these cyclists can work on their hills? Move to Spartanburg and ride with George Hincapie!
I'd suspect that her motivation for maintaining the regulation is because without it, there would be more competition in her industry. Of course a little safety and instruction is a good idea but 1500 hours is more time than a paramedic is required and paramedics use syringes and hold people's lives in their hands. We're talking about hair here, right?
