titwrench: When they start to require cyclists to register their bikes and help contribute tax dollars to the maintenance of the roads
Superjew: TaterTot_HotDish: this is an excellent example of entitled Hollywood assholes who thinks the world revolves around themNo, it's an example of moviemakers who spend millions of dollars in the area by using it for location filming pointing out that the green paint obstructs that purpose. Hyperbole much?
ZAZ: I thought paint was too slippery for bicycles. There are plastic coatings, but they are expensive to cover an area as opposed to a line.
RabidJade: They are also using a untaxed, unregulated vehicle on a roadway which was changed to accommodate them (all the fancy lines, curbs, and other paint for bicycle lanes/trails costs money you know).
titwrench: TaterTot_HotDish: ZAZ: I thought paint was too slippery for bicycles. There are plastic coatings, but they are expensive to cover an area as opposed to a line.I've ridden on this kind of green paint (they're misinformed when they say 'it doesn't exist in any other city' - yes, it does, idiots), and it has sand or something added to it to give it some grit. But it's still a bit slipperier than asphalt.Also, this is an excellent example of entitled Hollywood assholes who thinks the world revolves around them and don't mind sacrificing some non-celebrity bicyclists if it keeps their movie budgets lower.More like the entitled cyclists want the scenery to change to suit them. The Hollywood types want to keep everything the same. When they start to require cyclists to register their bikes and help contribute tax dollars to the maintenance of the roads then the cyclists can have some say as to how the roads are used until then shut the fark up and get out of the way.
SuburbanCowboy: As if they couldn't easily fix this. Normal every day shots on tv shows still have green screen.http://youtu.be/clnozSXyF4k

ecmoRandomNumbers: Duffy said in an interview. "We're in a crisis mode, and every one of these little things just puts us more into a crisis."
BarkingUnicorn: I'm no video expert. Can't they do a little "green screen" special effects to get rid of that green bike lane?
kapaso: titwrench: Uchiha_Cycliste: RabidJade: Dwight_Yeast: ...and that's where you started looking like an idiot. Most cyclists own cars. They buy gas for cars which is taxed to maintain the road. Understand?/the next lesson involves the fact that the original reason roads were paved with asphalt was for cyclists, not cars, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.They are also using a untaxed, unregulated vehicle on a roadway which was changed to accommodate them (all the fancy lines, curbs, and other paint for bicycle lanes/trails costs money you know). Also you last fact is probably wrong.You don't think there's sales tax on bikes?Sales tax? Really? I paid sales tax on my AR-15 too does that mean I can set up a shooting range on main street? If that is your argument shut the fark up. Sorry but the extra $20 you spent on your Schwinn doesn't give you Carte Blanche to clog up the streets.You should vent your anger in person, bicyclists have a special gathering where frustrated motorists like yourself can talk to the cyclists about their concerns. Just keep an eye out for the next critical mass ride and don't forgot to be as big an asshole IRL as you are on the Internet.
MrEricSir: [img844.imageshack.us image 510x318]Copenhagen has grade/curb separated bike lanes with separate stoplights for bikes. Americans are horribly behind when it comes to this sort of thing.
SirEattonHogg: Ima4nic8or: Screw the crying, multi-millionaire, movie execs. Is a city really supposed to plan its transportation around filming? Puhleeze. What is the priority here? A somewhat livable city with good transportation or a play ground for movie directors?The city's priority is also to provide jobs. The green painted lane don't just "screw multimillionaire execs" and movie directors don't use the downtown as a hobby or "playground" as you term it. Actually, it interferes wit a business which provides work to lots of people who aren't multimillionaire movie execs. I note you live in CA... maybe you've seen a film production or actuallty been on a set.
Brick-House: Paint them bright red so we won't notice the blood when these pretentious assholes get run over.
CruJones: Maybe try filming in the actual city being portrayed.
