Apparently the City of Portland is planning a special event: closing the streets to motorized traffic in one neighborhood, on Sundays. The streets will be reserved for pedestrians and bicyclists.
I wonder whether it has occurred to the sponsors that some people with mobility issues need motorized vehicles (like the bus or a car) to get around; others with "invisible" disabilities (like asthma) can't walk for long distances. I think this is a huge waste of tax dollars.
