Bike Free Boston?

Massachusetts recently made an effort to rid the state of cars.  I don’t know how successful it was, but Governor Deval Patrick reportedly had trouble following the plan.  Car-free week is just a fraction of the World Car Free Network’s effort to “take the heat off the planet, and put it on city planners and politicians to give priority to cycling, walking and public transport, instead of to the automobile.”

As Boston rolls out the bike-share system, which suggests a move away from cars, one critic is fighting for the other side.  In July, Boston Globe columnist Brian McGrory suggested the city ought to make Boston bike-free.

What do you think?
