Westlake has made it to the big leagues: StreetFilms.
The New York-based mini-documentary organization led by Clarence Eckerson Jr was in town for the NACTO conference last week, and the call of a long-sought bikeway finally constructed was just too strong.
It was a long and often frustrating fight to get this bikeway completed, so it’s pretty fun to see it get the full StreetFilms treatment.
Sadly, the frustrations continue as people keep getting flats from tacks on the bikeway. At first, it seemed possible that the tacks were dropped by accident. But after many efforts to clean them up, people are still getting flats from the same kind of tacks weeks later.

So it seems pretty certain that some unhinged person is assaulting strangers at random by spreading the tracks on the bikeway. I hope this person is caught and receives whatever help they need. Anyone with information should go to the police. People are already showing up late to work or to pick up their kids thanks to flats. It’s only a matter of time before someone is injured when their tire blows out.
In the meantime, many people are avoiding the brand new investment because they don’t want to deal with a flat. So congratulations to that asshole, I guess.
