    Btwd 2021

    Anyone have a sense of how it will work? I see something about staggered hours, and a time slot registration - so limits on the number per slot?

    So I had an officer interaction a few years back on 4th Street SW, where I was making a vehicular left on to Virginia to head to the metro station. I forget what the guy did, honked at me, ...

    I would venture that a very large number of cyclists who will Delaware a stop sign won't Idaho a red, and plenty who will Idaho a red on an all red phase, will not do so when there is cross traffic...

    Yeah. Where there's an actual protected intersection like that one in DTSS, I will do the full Copenhagen left, for the sheer joy of the infrastructure. I will occasionally do a box left even when...

    Theres an ordinance in Md requiring riding in a bike lane if it's available (unless they have repealed that since last I heard) but it has a bunch of exceptions, and I am pretty sure making a left...

    I would say MOST frequent transportation riders appear to me to realize A. That bikes are legal in the road B. That riding on the far right of the lane is not required, etc. IE the kinds of things...

    This doesn't really match my point though. People who regularly ride bikes on street generally have a pretty good idea of safe riding behavior, and of laws relating to bikes.

    Similarly, drivers...

    I have not yet had a vaccination, and I am being super cautious in the expectation that I will have a vaccine soon, so I will end my most pathetic FS since I first entered in 2015 (in terms of miles...

    The line also served the Robinson Terminal which handled newsprint for the Post. I am not sure when the last delivery by rail there was made, but the terminal was put up for sale in 2013.
