    The block north of 28th and south of the new building, where the MUP is supposed to go, appears to have had some kind of turf put in to cover the new utilities. Evidently they don't plan to open the...

    I don't know if you could. Probably harder to do in Va than banning small mopeds. And to note, 2nd hand smoke in an open public place has not been shown (AFAIK) to be a health hazard, while tailpipe...

    One of the reasons I prefer riding on trails, over riding on streets, is to avoid exposure to tailpipe emissions. I think that is also a reason runners and walkers like them (and yes, I know the GWMP...
