There seems to be a vehicle overcrowding problem at the University of South Alabama. Too many vehicles and not enough places to park them. The least the University of South Alabama should do is build a few cheap covered shelters so students can keep their fine vehicles out of the rain.
Wow, I cannot believe how much bicycle usage has increased at the USA campus. Could it be the wide sidewalks and bicycle lanes (separate from the roadways), which the University has built, provided the incentive for more bicycle usage? Probably so.
The City of Mobile should be so wise. Build a network of wide paved trails separate from the roadways. Mobile sits on a network of drainage canals, some with trails off limits to the public. Just like at the University of South Alabama, if a functional network of wide paved trails or sidewalks are built, they will get used and will become very popular.
The citizens of Mobile would benefit from a network of bicycle-walking trails. If people in Mobile want the desirable safe car free transportation network, they need to fund the construction of it by passing a penny increase on their sales tax for a year. That includes car drivers who want to get the bicyclists off the public roads. The only way to get bicyclists off the narrow public roads is to provide them with their own network of car free trails.
