    That "No Turn on Red" sign can't come soon enough. Its absence completely negates the point of the leading pedestrian interval as demonstrated by that white car's actions.

    I would disagree. When my bike was stolen from the Ballston parking garage about 3 years ago, mall security pushed me off on the parking management company, both of which were no help whatsoever. It...

    Thanks, everyone, for the advice. I actually didn't realize that the garage is county-owned, so perhaps that fact will help in getting better facilities.

    For the time being, I will keep my bike in...
