D: not sure how yet. But it was by the rail track barrier.
A similar barrier to slow bikes in Toronto was causing many impact injuries.
D: I guess the barriers are called bollards.
Metal poles on the Martin Goodman Trail near the Boulevard Club that are injuring cyclists may yet suffer a well-deserved death – before someone is killed by them.
We've previously written about the poles, also known as "bollards," installed to slow down cyclists crossing the laneway to the tennis club on Lake Shore Blvd. W. and keep them from being mowed down by entering or exiting vehicles.
There are two sets of staggered bollards on either side of the driveway, which require cyclists to slow and pass through them at an angle. But some cyclists end up snagging a bike pedal or limb on the poles and are sent crashing to the pavement.
For more than a year, we've been getting complaints from people who have encountered an injured cyclist, or have been hurt themselves.
John Treacy emailed last fall to say he broke a femur and his collarbone in a collision with the bollards, adding he was "knocked senseless" and was temporarily in a wheelchair afterward."
D: god forbid you ask cars to slow/stop instead.
Like I've said before, the car is king cuz we treat it like royalty.
