Last but not least Glenn would really like to see Kaua'i give the county manager style of Government a chance.
|Mr. Mickens is locally known|
as one of Kauai county's
Whose willing to abandon their vehicle
For every biker or walker who use the Kauai multi use trail for "travel" there are a thousand vehicle users who will never abandon that car or truck for any other means of travel.
There was a Garden Island poll taken on 3/18 that asked "What's the best way to ease Kauai's traffic troubles?" 688 people responded and 339 said to build more roads whereas 32 want to add more bike/pedestrian paths. Even if you expand this poll to the masses the results are going to be the same.
And to try and make the case that the multi-use path will ever alleviate traffic is also a dream. In fact, most people have to take their vehicle to get to the path and thus increase traffic
If we live with the fact that the vehicle is here to stay and we have to plan and accommodate for their use--wider and more alternate roads, we will improve the traffic congestion that now plagues us. And, again get us a County Manager who will go after problems like this with solutions being his/her only goal--not politics!!
