|The time for bicycle improvements has come|
Granted, the campus has no direct jurisdiction in the surrounding area. Still, the case could be made that our administration, preferring not to get involved, shares the blame for the dire state of affairs. As the campus is politely refraining from participating in the planning processes, declining to represent the interest of those who would rather bike, it became very easy for Council Member Koretz to listen to a few well-organised home-owners who have a hard time seeing the universal benefits of bicycle infrastructure. The silence of UCLA encouraged Koretz to kill a crucial bike lane which would connect UCLA to the Expo Station in Westwood and which is a dedicated back-bone connection in the LA Bicycle Masterplan, which was adopted with his own vote.
