I note that City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky has asked the council to consider forcing developers to include parking areas for bicycles in their projects (Times, Oct. 31).
Perhaps there is finally a solution for the problems created by too many automobiles in Los Angeles. But will the oil industry stand by and let it happen especially with gasoline at $1.50 per gallon?
If they must go the bicycle route, why not bicycles built for two or even three? That would not only cut traffic and congestion, but make for a much more cozy society. The hitch-hikers will find a better and safer way unless they find it comfortable on the handlebars.
