    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...

    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.

    I see the sign as simply an indicator of which lanes are which, not requirements. At least that's the intent that I perceive. They are like painted lane markers in that regard. Of course, now we can...
