Honolulu is dangerous for bicyclists yet our mayor has plans of installing a bike lane on King Street knowing the bicyclists will interact with all the cars turning left. He maybe wishing accidents will not occur and if he is right, my apologies for being negative on this bike lane. But should just ONE accident occur, our mayor should scrap the bike lane. Are you listening Mr. Mayor?
