Bicycling to sports complex gets you expelled

A recent study shows that suburban sprawl creates a car-dependent lifestyle pattern that fosters chronic diseases.

Unfortunately, then, San Jose is promoting sprawl with with its recent proposed sports complex, located on a road so dangerous that children are forbidden under threat of expulsion from walking or bicycling to the athletic fields. The complex is a prelude to tearing out the remaining agriculture and replacing working farms with subdivisions.

Our comment letter on the project is here.
