Tuesday fun

For those of you into Twitter, Zachary Shahan gives a rundown of a fun thread that flips anti-bike arguments around: #replacebikewithcar. Some examples:

The business I went to didn't offer parking so I had to chain my car to a street pole #ReplaceBikeWithCar

There's a pole at the intersection, drivers can get out of the car and push the button when they want green light. #ReplaceBikeWithCar

Driving to work sounds nice but it just isn't realistic. What if there's snow and ice on the roads? #ReplaceBikeWithCar

Woman arrested after three children found locked in hot bike. #ReplaceBikeWithCar

Give it a go.
