    It's so cute that they're pretending to care about public input while they do what they've been trying to do for decades.

    just remember, if you get hit outside of the crosswalk it's your own fault! if you get hit in the crosswalk, OTOH, it's just one of those things.

    Unfortunately, normalizing that data is near impossible so determining the relative risk is also a guessing game. At some point trying to squeeze more information out of bad data is an exercise in...

    Assuming a coffee maker, you should be fine--most will get the water more than hot enough to kill stuff in the water. (Recommendations to boil water for 10 minutes or whatever are bs: 158 degrees for...

    Mostly I think he expressed personal preference via very poor datasets. Hopefully, though, we'll be able to move beyond wishing the world were different and actually designing safer...

    I guess the people who didn't feel safe with cars whizzing past were right, Forester notwithstanding?

    I did find it interesting that their data has multiple categories for "cyclist failed to...

    The problem is, that isn't what the sign communicates. It says that you're perfectly ok going 15MPH (+ the 10MPH courtesy window) which is flat out dangerous on a crowded trail. If the intent is to...

    We've already been repeatedly assured that ebikes can't speed because classes. So a 20MPH speed limit does absolutely nothing. (Logically it can't be enforced until someone's doing 30, which will...

    Speed limits on trails are stupid except to satisfy haters who want bikes to not be "special" and have rules even if the rules are stupid. There is absolutely no reason to ever post a trail speed...

    I think you mean battleview parkway? At any rate, it's basically the cyclist scene from Dante's Inferno. :) It wasn't great even 10 years ago, but there used to be quiet back roads. Then they kept...

    For others reading, the ixon iq premium has the same kind of beam shape, but is 50% brighter. (And is also bigger.) I find that one's bright enough, but I still keep a helmet light for backup and as...

    I'd argue the opposite--a head-on collision between modern cars more likely than not results in everyone walking away without serious injuries; a head-on between two cyclists will almost certainly...

    "Questionable etiquette" is a key phrase here. Among some it's become important to be seen dramatically taking action to fiddle with a headlight. These people get angry if they can't see someone...

    It's hard to imagine VDOT actually acting on any of this data. IME the problem isn't that VDOT is unaware of issues, it's more that they choose to ignore them.

    The problem I see here is that a couple of dozen posts ago someone proposed a couple of hypotheticals, and some people are supporting one and some people are arguing against the other, leading to an...

    Yes and no. It's legal to be in the street, but it's also required by law to have a reflector and/or lights.

    Bikes come with reflectors; if people decide they're too cool for the reflectors and rip them off...well, they've made their choice. Equipping cars with a strobe just outside the visual spectrum that...
