    I'm sure a defense attorney would love to cross examine a witness who says they can tell how fast someone was going by looking at them.



    Sure it is, as explained before. The W&OD is 45 miles...

    I don't think there's any accident reconstruction science to tell that someone was doing 12MPH on a bike vs 22MPH on a bike.

    I still oppose a 15MPH speed limit because it's stupid.

    Exactly. And speed limits are a mindless non-contextual solution. 15MPH is low for the hinterlands and downright dangerous in the crowded parts. (And since LE agencies seem required to add 5 or 10...

    Given its druthers, a deer would rather be out of plain view. If you can see the deer, it's stressed because a predator is watching it. Their natural behavior would be to run to deep cover, which is...

    As an example, for several of these cases, instead of having a no-imagination right angle intersection, why not have a large chamfered approach to the trail with a landscape feature (flowers,...

    I hate what the deer are doing to the rest of the ecosystem; they're insanely overpopulated. When I see suburban deer I'm mostly sad, because a deer that close to people is being forced there by...

    And, there are treatments to block vehicle access that are safer than a bollard right in the middle of the path. But they're more effort than defaulting to dropping a bollard in.

    It's also good to use current examples to test whether the rules are sufficient.

    All trail speed limits are stupid and impractical. I hope they don't actually waste time and ink on one.

    if you got water in it more than a year ago and it's feeling funky, I'd replace the cable if not the cable + housing; grease won't remove corrosion.

    Navigation is exempted while moving, provided that it's attached to the vehicle and you can't enter data while moving. If the vehicle is stopped then the whole bill doesn't apply.

    I think not having lights is pretty consistent with not being allowed on the road--bikes & pedestrians don't need reflectors or lights on sidewalks, either.

    I approve of these lights. :) As an added bonus, it's really easy to carry spares for the ones that run on AAs (or in the worst case, stop at a 7-11 or whatever.)

    Are the shoes open above/behind the cleat? Some are, and you can seal that off with packing tape or similar.

    This. Also, if they did add a wall, they'd probably put the trail between the wall and the road, because that's safer for out-of-control drivers.

    To put that into perspective, the new Wilson bridge was $2.35 billion.

    Also interesting: the long bridge was built in 1814, rebuilt in 1863, rebuilt again in 1872, rebuilt again in 1884, rebuilt...

    I love studded tires. If you ride mainly on trails they're great fun. On streets, the question is whether the cars around you will lose control.
