    If it's going to be awhile to get the underpass fixed, then serious consideration should be put into painting a crosswalk at Manchester where the curb cuts are and putting either a "stop for...

    This would definitely have some interesting use cases. The price may be off putting to those with lower priced bikes, but I could see these installed in a setting where those costs could be...

    If a car drove the wrong way down a highway and caused other vehicles to have collisions, but was not actually in a collision themselves, they should certainly be found liable as the negligent party.

    If the Wilson underpass isn't going to be fixed anytime soon, could they at least stripe a temporary crossing at the preferred location for crossing Wilson. The detour requires riding a narrow...

    Looking at the proposed re-striping plans for Lorcom and Military, neither are remotely in alignment with the NACTO standards in the Bike Master Plan for roads with that volume of traffic. Going by...

    If they geofenced parking areas, which I'd assume they would do if impoundment was actually a penalty for illegal scooter parking, they would have a pretty good idea where the scooter was parked and...

    Since the scooter companies have location data on all their scooters, it would be pretty easy to demonstrate you are committing fraud and have you criminally charged. It wouldn't be much difference...

    I like the idea of scooters and the dockless model, but there being scattered about is a serious safety issue, particularly at night or in periods of low visibility.

    My thought on regulating them...

    It seems like you'd need railroad crossing gates to prevent cars turning right on red.

    From VDOT's estimated counts, that part of Quincy St is 12k per day - https://www.virginiadot.org/info/resources/Traffic_2018/AADT_000_Arlington_2018.pdf. By NACTO that should require PBLs.

    The bridge over Spout Run is right next to the highway. Also the part coming out of Bon Air park.
  12. WWB is similar in length to the segments on I-66...

    WWB is similar in length to the segments on I-66 inside the sound wall and has similar noise issues. There are a couple similar sections on the Custis trail where the trail is between the highway...

    I don't agree that most people won't use such facilites. The WWB trail is quite well utilized despite it being next to a 10 lane highway with only a jersey barrier, VA portion excepted with the nice...

    While I don't think it's ideal to have the trail inside the sound wall, I would rather have more trails that are separated, than worry about them being next to a highway.

    In my case it would...

    If they are following the NACTO guidelines, then a buffered or protected bike lane would be the recommended treatment along Quincy St depending on the traffic volume. If the traffic volume is above...

    This, plus VA's contributory negligence laws are what concern me. If you ride in the regular lane and get ran over by a reckless driver, does the single fact you weren't in the PBL limit your...

    Or you can just walk.

    My kids have one, and to say they have a high learning curve would be an understatement.
  19. I think the law is unclear in VA if you would be...

    I think the law is unclear in VA if you would be allowed to use the regular travel lane for traveling. Bikes are supposed to stay to the right under VA law, unless impractical. To me, that means by...

    Regardless if the critics like/dislike the laws, policies, and master plans, those are what planners are supposed to follow, not what some critics bring up as disliking current policy. If the...

    Is the city even following it's own policies in this design. If they aren't, that would be the strongest place to start. Staff can try and accommodate outspoken critics of bike/pedestrian...

    This may be a best case scenario.

    The beg buttons at Barcroft and on the 4MR trail at Walter Reed are inconsistent depending on whether the light cycle got triggered by cross traffic. I'm ok...

    They added beg buttons to the W&OD crossing. They better not be planning to actually turn them on, as that would be a big downgrade in service for trail users.

    Now that the crosswalks are striped, you can see that the SW corner of Walter Reed and 4 Mile Run requires either navigating a chicane or going outside the crosswalk to actually get to/from the...

    I took photos of the "raised" crosswalk and it's basically not raised at all. If I had to guess, there's about 3" of grade difference and it's over such a long distance, you could drive through...
