The Center for Public Integrity Talks SFBC, South Florida Road Lobby

The Center for Public Integrity has released a an investigative piece on the Transportation Lobby that quotes South Florida Bike Coalition Executive Director Kathryn Moore (me). Last month, I was proud to meet with Mathew Lewis, one of the Center’s journalists, to discuss the rising tide of panic that seemed to be pervading the Transportation Lobby in response to the USDOT’s new (bike/ped-friendly) policy. We met over dinner on Flagler Street in Downtown Miami – a comparatively narrow Miami street that has been the focus of many experiments in road redesign over the years. We discussed what makes South Florida roadways intimidating to people on bicycle or on foot and why I think the Road Lobby’s concerns over complete streets are misguided. You can read the article here and I encourage you to watch the video! SFBC’s part begins at 3:35.
