    No turn is red is absolutely necessary here but also insufficient.

    Even with "no turn on red" signage at these two intersections, I expect a low enough compliance rate that I would still feel...

    Aside:

    (Yes I know that no new rider would cycle on the Pike to begin with; they would choose the sidewalk/"trail" along its northside. But with the awful ramp crossings, poor sightlines, and...

    I do agree that even though the design is terrible, it is better to have a trail along 66 than not.

    We cyclists often lack direct routes that minimize distances and hills, partially because the...

    Air quality along the 66 trail will be unbearable in the summer. The soundwall will prevent dissipation of heat, highway noise, and exhaust fumes. When the asphalt road surface chips, vehicles will...

    For an intersection between what should be two calm residential streets, this design appears very unsafe. The angles are odd, only one street has stop signs, and there is far too much extra pavement...

    Yes that area is a challenge. Key Bridge really needs on-street protected bike lanes.

    Absolutely not my intent.

    Rather, I was making the observation that reports have somehow refrained from impugning the victim yet. Not only have they not blamed the victim; they're also seeking...

    If I were driving in that time and place, I'd expect I might encounter deer but not a bicyclist.

    What's bizarre is the lack of info about lights/helmet/reflective clothing/etc. Usually that's the...

    "Safely practicable" is the language used in 46.2-905. A non-exhaustive list of exceptions is provided, indicating many examples of situations that permit riding further left than is necessary...

    That list also contains some errors/omissions regarding bike lanes that definitely existed in 2014.

    I agree this is the intent. But the white sign color indicates that the information is regulatory, per MUTCD.

    I think (hope?) we all agree that Arlington cannot legally prohibit bicyclists from taking the lane on Quincy. However, that is precisely the message communicated by this sign. If you interpret this...

    For sake of discussion, this is one of the new signs (looking northbound on N Quincy Street from the intersection with 5th Rd N):

    Yes, one can identify the car more reliably than the driver. A vehicle owner could claim that someone else was driving the car, and that person could dispute it. For this reason, Dutch law 185 WVW...

    This is not about any individual street. I support street redesign that would reduce and narrow the driving lanes on Florida Ave and similar places. But witnesses estimate the speeds of the two...
