Letter to the Editor: Bicycle riders disappointed with traffic conditions

Saturday, January 9th, 2016


Letters-to-the-EditorDear Editor,
We are passionate bicycle riders and were dearly disappointed with the traffic conditions on this island. We thought bicycling was way too dangerous.
We would have expected dedicated bike lanes which would be beneficial for locals and tourists for their safety.
Supporting safe biking would improve the overall low road appeal on the island and reduce your bad and congested traffic situation. It would also make San Pedro more attractive to visit.
We thought that traffic behavior by truck and taxi drivers was very dangerous. That also includes way too high dust development and exhaust from fast driven cars.
This is not what we anticipated for an ecological and relaxing vacation. We came to recuperate but felt rather stressed. The island seems to be on a very misguided path to responsibly attract tourists.
