    Also odd, given that there has been a huge uproar over the danger of 2nd St S and S Irving St, and ACPD's response has been that they don't have the resources to have someone there in the mornings...

    Yes. And yes. Though with three foot passing rules, I think it would be the car that would be in the wrong in that isutation.

    But really, I was just referring to the nomenclature.

    Just looking at a map, Vista St NE to Franklin St NE looks like the obvious route.

    Also, looking at the map, I would totally do Atlas last, minimizing time on major roads. But I really don't know...

    I try to filter in between the right lane and the center lane in Gtown. If that's not an option, I go for between the center lane and left lane. At least you can't say that drivers aren't expecting...

    To B. I don't think it's so clear cut that the situation describes does impede the smooth flow of traffic. And it certainly has a point.

    Where is there a law about failure to yield on a trail? Certainly on a road, but I've never seen one on a trail.

    If you had a collision where both people were actually legally, but one was being...

    Those calcs seem to assume that the cyclist rides with the edge of the handlebars on the edge of the lane. That's usually a stupid place to ride, because if you have to swerve, you can only swerve...

    As I'm sure you've figured out by now, we call this "filtering". I generally filter, as long as it's safe.

    (1) It's legal.

    (2) It helps the overall flow of traffic -- more people get through...

    (1) Under Virginia law, a car can cross the double yellow to pass a bike. So "can't legally pass me at all" is wrong. And if they can't pass because there is oncoming traffic, then the car's speed is...

    Because what she is doing is illegal, and what the other person is doing is not, she would be liable. That's why getting police to write tickets in collisions is so important.

    I actually don't think this is what will happen. It could turn out that more crowded trails means that overall people will ride slower and not make stupid passes, just expecting no one to be there....
