Not that I would support it but I am surprised there hasn't been any group trying to convert this freeway to an urban boulevard with bike lanes and crap.

Heh, the last time I drove on The Coop, there as some dingbat riding a bike in the right lane going eastbound as the freeway starts.  There was construction at that location too, so it created quite the fustercluck.  Not to judge a book by it's cover, but there seemed to be something going on with that dude beyond some kind of arrogant cyclist thing.

In heavy traffic in LA I have witnessed on two different occasions people riding E Scooters on the 110 and 101. Absolutely nuts. If traffic picks back up again that becomes life and death. Not denying that it wouldn't fun while traffic is at a standstill but you won't see me doing that.
