My frustration at the councilor's Tweet and subsequent tweets she shows a stalk difference been us here and her. I'm not sure how to word it, but the tweets from Mike Connolly subcommunicates that he's asking the same questions and has the same desires that we would express and advocate if we were in his shoes. Mouakad does not subcommunicate that, while she's not wrong, she is also implicitly signaling what she cares about and it doesn't care about.
Despite that our ideas of how to address it is questionable, there are solutions if "we" care enough about it. The Belgium example may not be the right solution for this exact context, but it reflects the lengths willing to go to accommodate, that's a willingness problem. If a road was in a similar situation, it is doubtful that the tweet would be just "close the road", it would something like get it "this is unsafe, get it done faster, if that's not possible, find a safe workaround" (and sometimes it's not even safe, but that's a different discussion). But this bike trail, it is evident it is not viewed in the same way. Somehow what gets her motivate enough to care is people doing something that is unsafe, but apparently not being being in the situation in the first place.
