    High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) will be starting shortly in the City of Alexandria. In addition to the usual reasons to obey traffic laws, being particularly careful to obey traffic laws in the...

    The cookies were excellent, and the ride was fun. It was fairly warm though.
  3. Eye Street SE, EB closed at Half Street

    The entire EB side of the road is closed - the EB bike lane, the EB general travel lane, and the "sidewalk" due to construction.

    NYC /= Manhattan (Not saying you don't know that, just pointing out the larger NYC issues). There are plenty of awful stroads with no bike infrastructure in the outer boroughs. I think a lot of the...

    It makes an exception for cyclists turning left, IIRC. It does NOT envision a protected Copenhagen left as an option. I think a decent bike lawyer could make a case that the availability of a...

    Some are things that are not laws applying to all scooters, but rules applying to dockless scooters based memoranda of understanding with local govts. For example I think the laws for helmets for a...
  9. Near miss at S Eads and S 26th Road, Arlington, Va

    Some of y'all have heard a bit about this on Strava, thought I would fill people in (esp now that I have spoken to Mr Deming, Esq, and determined there seems to be too little $ at stake to sue)

    SteveC can certainly speak for himself, but I think he was trying to counter the argument that "ebikers are reluctant adopters of biking, more likely to be parents with kids along, etc, hence will be...

    The data for Europe though showed fewer infractions for ebikes.

    So data mixed, overall no evidence that ebikes are better or worse in behavior so far (this could change as they get more uptake in...

    I use both the Wharf PBL AND the Case bridge route.

    Even going slowly, the Wharf route is usually faster for me than Case. I get used to dealing with peds and cars coming out of the driveways. ...

    If bikes were half of all traffic, requiring them to come to a full stop at every stop sign would be unworkable, I think. Or we would have to have many fewer stop signs and replace them with yield...

    I've certainly never said Seminary Hill/Seminary Ridge (assuming that is what you are referring to?) is NOT a suburban dystopia.

    That said, don't call this one a wrap just yet.
