    Yes, this is what WABA has been calling for, and what will (hopefully) make it into Arlington's Bike Element.



    These are not reasons that folks in Arlington resist bridges like this. In fact,...

    But the one on the water side comes up to one's torso. Less chance of falling over it.

    True, but adopting is one step in a hard process. Working with a County that won't even hold meetings on how we can possibly adopt it... that's even harder.

    They can talk to NPS and DC, and they can talk to their Congressional representation. ABAC advises the County Manager, so that would be the thrust of it. If individual citizens wanted to directly...

    I think Yule's description is a bit unfair. The MVT is the access point for most of the trips from Arlington to DC, and while it could be better, it's not apocalyptic. Except for the Trollheim, which...

    Sorry, what I really meant to say was:

    If it please, I offer a friendly amendment:

    Arlington should adopt Vision Zero.

    You know, because we haven't. :mad:

    It's a great idea. I can only think of one that doesn't meet this -- Glebe Road near Chain Bridge.

    Are there others? There aren't many roads with speed limits >= 30, so shouldn't be too hard to...

    I assume because allowing it to travel after the low battery has been detected would make it harder to replace the battery.

    Ah, but they've added flags at the highly dangerous crossing.

    Flags.

    downstream side will be closed. Hopefully, they'll put in a HAWK signal before someone is struck in that crosswalk on the NE side.

    Oh, wait. I just realized that the two-waying of Fort Myer, and the moving of GWMP access from Lynn to Fort Myer would CLONE THE INTERSECTION OF DOOM.

    I don't think we want two intersections of...

    If you have the time and date, you can still report it. It's likely they can figure out which bus went through then (they have GPS and routing data, and cameras on the buses). At the very least, they...

    This is great until NPS closes the downstream side of the Memorial Bridge too. I keep trying to get info on when that's going to happen, but no luck so far.

    So glad that it wasn't worse, and I'm amazed at your resilience to all this. And especially at your calm in the face of the officer. Un-freaking-believable.
