    Yes, exactly. Also known as reductio ad absurdum.

    If that's a problem, then most of the threads here qualify. It's just a discussion where people come to understanding what the other means. Anyway, here's a great opportunity to end it.

    I'd say it depends on where they are, if they are moving, what direction they are moving relative to you, etc. Just as a bike is required to have reflectors, etc. to have a reasonably minimum level...
  4. Yeah, I completely agree on that.

    Yeah, I completely agree on that.

    As noted before, the law requires cyclists to have certain equipment for visibility.

    Not a strawman, just confusion. I was responding to the idea, real or imagined on my part, that someone believed that bikes should have absolutely no visibility requirements at all. If you agree that...

    Okay, but I didn't read your post as making such a distinction. I thought you were saying that a pedestrian or cyclist has no responsibility for being visible at night at all.

    If the person can't be seen, he can't be seen. If you go out in the street on a moonless night in all black, you could be completely invisible to drivers. It is absolutely a driver's responsibility...

    If a driver can't see you in time to stop running over you, it's not a driver problem. It doesn't absolve ALL responsibility, but sometimes a driver isn't responsible if they simply can't see you in...

    Both.

    The sculpture garden is located in between NGA and Natural History. But yes, NGA owns it.

    What I don't know is how they get sculptures to grow like that.

    It's possible they wanted to control speed coming down the hill from the opposite direction too.

    All I know is it wasn't really about pedestrians crossing, but about speed control.

    The light wasn't ever really designed to let pedestrians cross. It was a speed-control measure. It turns red automatically when you roll down that hill too fast. I think that's why it is in that...
  15. Wow. They should just turn the thing upside down.

    Wow. They should just turn the thing upside down.

    I'd guess it was meant for access to the tennis courts and park on the rose garden side and not anticipated as a detour. It could also be a matter of traffic having time to slow and stop and/or sight...

    My theory is that this flood was so powerful and fast that it swept all the debris much further.

    You: a Capitol Police officer riding a bike, running a red to cross Independence Avenue. Apparently not responding to an emergency or anything like that, just running a red because you can.

    Hi, cyclist salmoning around cars stopped to allow me to cross as a pedestrian in Ballston, almost hitting me. Don't do that.

    I am married into the 1% and my kids both bat mitzvahed in, so I have heard the references before but still don't know what most of them mean. I know what kvetching is though. Boy, do I know.
