Jimmy McMillan just lost the cyclist vote
Jimmy McMillan, the rent is too damn, blah, blah guy, is running for president. He's even holding a news conference in Tompkins Square Park next week to announce his candidacy.
Meanwhile! The Local East Village conducted a Q-and-A with McMillan ... to an excerpt!
Bike lane use is a big issue in the East Village. How would you handle that issue?
Get rid of them. You have cars running up on bicycle lanes – people are getting run over. These are idiots! There are not enough bicyclists. I did a personal count. In one week in the East Village on First Avenue and Second Avenue, there were about 25 people on each avenue. It’s not enough. They’re better for states with warmer climates, like in Florida. You cannot have bicycle lanes where there is snow.
