Only in San Francisco
In San Francisco there is a set of "hip" people who want to get rid of cars and add more bicycles to the transportation mix. Whole blocks of parking are disappearing to accommodate bike lanes.
Many car lanes are also disappearing to make way for bike lanes.
In China, the average people want to do away with their bicycle and get a car.
Obviously two different world views. Those people in China who have had bikes their whole life but no car , want to make life easier by obtaining a car and those who have access to cars in the United States want to make a political statement about many things but I am guessing the political statement conceptually revolves around global warming . After a few years of riding the bikes I suspect many of these American people will return to riding cars and live in the suburbs as they get older.
