Blind advocates say a bike lane design on a Toronto street spells danger

David Lepofsky was shocked to learn he was about to cross from the sidewalk into a bike path during a walk with a friend earlier this month — something he only learned because his sighted friend pointed it out.

A CBC article recently reported on poor bike lane design in Toronto. AEBC President Marcia Yale was quoted in the article.

"It's like saying we know that seatbelts are really good for you and just deciding not to put them in a car," said Yale. "Why would you use an old design, if you know that there are newer ones?"
