Does /n/ agree with Mr. Cuozzo's latest opinion piece about ebikes? He's been right about bike stuff before. For example September 1, 2018, when he dropped the ultimate truth bomb on the 5 boroughs.

bicycle is the 4chan of transportation. we can be cunts, but we are also accepting and capable of awesome things, and generally just have fun with our oldschool analog ways.
e-bikers would be the election tourists, they heard that biking is cool and unregulated but don't even bother turning the pedals to fit in, they bring their new motorized ways to the temple. they are always low effort, so they neither have fun nor restraint, they just do whatever because they can. run every red? ride over posted speed limit for cars? cut across the road and ride against traffic? lmao who's gonna catch you, road jannies can't even be bothered with motorcycles and those have plates and can be heard 5 blocks over.

He speaks for New Yorkers of all ages. That's why he's so popular.

I for one would rather get run over by an Action Carting truck than have my city be taken over by 2 million bike karens who look like Martin Shkreli. Bike activists are the best anti-bike propaganda ever invented. Lack of bike lanes is not a real problem, it's a distraction invented by anti-bike people. The actual purpose of bike lanes is to specify where people are allowed to use bicycles and where they aren't, so that motorists can feel reassured every time they run over someone while texting. They are pretty much the same thing as helmet laws, except that they serve an additional purpose which is to designate which neighborhoods have (supposedly) been gentrified.

Are you in the real estate industry btw? Only real estate shills are this obsessed over putting their magic green paint everywhere. Probably makes it a lot easier to push another shoddy rat-infested apartment on clueless transplants. Oh hey look there's some green parking spaces, this will surely make things safer for me!

When you have an increase in usage, it is statistically normal to have an increase in incidents. Most of em are just retards who never biked in a city before, banning e-bikes won't do shit.

The old man isn't wrong. Bike lanes never get used where I live and just cause congestion because they took valuable road space.
Waste of resources

Buh bwah bwah bwah - shut up, boomer. Can anyone catch a break in NYC or do they have to tax and regulate every fucking thing? It's bad enough it costs a fortune to live there. Why not tax and regulate walking? Let's have "no running" enforcement cameras, why not (these could be useful for ape-gait pre-chimpout/violence prevention though).
>>
>>1802146
He’s right. Riding an e bike is just the Costco sample version of driving a car.
>>
He's not entirely wrong but pointing at pedestrian being in danger is silly. Ban cars first, they are actually heavy and fast and will injure pedestrian on collision. Bikes are also unpleasant to collide with, but it's more of a similar weight class.
He should point out much more the fact that ebike users have no regard for traffic regulations because they are undetectable, have no loicense, and no plates. There's no incentive not to run the red light if you are certain you can do it and live.

>Of the 1,260 bicyclist deaths in 2020, 806 died in motor-vehicle crashes and 454 in other incidents, according to National Center for Health Statistics mortality data.
Cyclists love to point out the danger of cars but a third of cyclist deaths don't involve cars at all, so clearly there's still some terminal retardation involved.

Origin of the word Cuozzo.
In some regional dialects of Campania, Italy the word "cuozzo" indicates the non-cutting part of a blade, more specifically the ax.
When we mean that someone or something is bad, we use the expression: "è ffatt cu ‘o cuozzo r’accetta" that is to say: "it is made with the bulk of the ax".
In the same dialects the "cozzetiello" (little cuozzo) is the final part of the bread shape, with a thick and hard crust, rough.
It can be easily deduced that the sense of "cuozzo" is something unrefined, large and coarse, not very sharp; therefore the cuozzo would be a not very refined and rough person.
And who is more crude, in Neapolitan and Campania folklore, than those who show off their wealth without criteria and with snobbery without taking care of their mind and spirit?
The cuozzo is a grotesque and vulgar figure, the cuozzo despite possessing wealth and theoretically having the possibility of being a "gentleman" chooses to flaunt and turn into a grotesque speck.

I wish there could be seperated bike lanes here like in some other countries. They have one on the blvd in my city that goes through the middle of it in the grass and it's so nice. I'm not sure how that would be possible in nyc though. I'd rather that shithole sink into the sea though, it gives the rest of new york state a bad name.

How about you try using them then?

I don't think he really gives a shit about pedalist dying, rather, he's pointing out accidents involving electric mopeds and pedestrians. Which is kind of legitimate concern, even if it looks blown out of proportion to me.
There was a similar issue with cars, motorcycles, and gasoline mopeds, remember how we solved it?

Eliminate all commercial roads in NYC and replace them with bike lanes.
Only emergency lanes for emergency vehicles, bikes, and sidewalks.
If you drive in NYC you're a fucking idiot that enjoys going 0.3 miles per hour as it is.

At least half of them I see aren't even being pedaled, they're either modified or they're sold that way in the first place. They're not even 'e-bikes' anymore, they're electric mopeds.
They should be banned from bike paths (along with all other motor-powered shit) and for street use they should be classed as mopeds, requiring a license plate, insurance, and the operator licensed just like mopeds.
