    A bicycle ban (and other wheel related vehicles) in Forsyth Park and squares of savannah would never work because they're not enough police to enforce the issue. All over Europe, cyclists and pedestrian share the same space. Most the time, when cyclists approach pedestrians, they are courteous enough to jump off their cycles and walk their cycles around pedestrians knowing full well that pedestrians could possibly be injured by their vehicles. Thus, the issue becomes one of "courtesy and respect" for the other party in a shared space. Perhaps, cyclists should have to post a number on their bike and be registered to ride in the city. Webcams could be posted throughout the squares. We could promote more courtesy and respect here and if one did not dismount when spotted among a group of people, he or she could be fined if identified by number in a WebCam. After so many fines, that individual would then lose the privilege of riding a bicycle in Savannah ...I say promote more web cams in squares!
