VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF #194: We Had A Few Trampoline Commuter Lanes

Maybe Gregor was wrong to concentrate on just bike lanes. Not even mouth-breathing gearheads who bench press Hummers between roid shakes would dare protest such an awesome thing as a trampoline commuter lane. Scout not only proposes these as viable options for the Dunsmuir and Georgia viaducts, but reiterates its call for trampoline add-ons to each of Vancouver’s major bridges. Though traveling upon such bouncy snakes would obviously be subject to the mandatory helmet law, what a nightly comedy they would make once the bars let out (hat tip to reader C.A.)
