  2. National Park Service is inviting comments on the Beach Drivve closures

    Besides filling out the WABA petition, I hope that folks who would like to maintain the Beach Drive closures also provide written comments to the Park Service.

    I'm sure MStone is correct. I've been paying attention on my rides in Montgomery County. Less traveled streets have no marking in the cernter. More heavily used streets all have double yellow...

    Thanks. Your post makes a lot of sense. Besides the two roads I mentioned in my previous post, I've now come across a third with a double yellow line. And come to think of it, given the speed...

    I then did a google search on lane width and found the following in Wikipedia: "In the United...

    Somehow an earlier response by me did not show up, so I will try again.

    I was biking on Sligo Parkway between New Hampshire and University. This is a two lane road. Some sections have a double...
  12. Question about law concerning two cyclists riding abreast
