Bike shelters, not parks
To the Editor:
What the USA and Portland needs is weather shelters at every bus stop. These are to be large enough for several bicycles and people and a place to lockup the bikes. They are to be used for the bus and bicycle riders. Every business must be required to provide at least two places to lock bicycles-preferably under a roof.

If a bicycle or scooter is stolen, the crime will be the same as if a vehicle was stolen. If no money, then jail time with bread and water only.

Some of the better trails should allow scooters of less than five horse power and should have a shelter every mile. I live not far from the trail along I-84 and rarely is it used.

Who needs more parks? We need more common sense.
