    Honestly, if they believe that, they're probably better off not biking. You can get seriously hurt going 25+ on a bike if you don't know what you're doing.

    Ah, another jurisdiction that apparently ignores the federal guidance that bollards should be a last resort, when markings have proved insufficient. And what a particularly stupid installation this...

    No, that's why the trail is so important; VDOT has been busily "making the roads more efficient", so you've got through options like route 29 or route 50 and that's about it.

    A far more likely outcome is that the parking benefit will be restored but the biking benefit will be left out. Because fiscal responsibility. Or some such lying bullshit.

    To be fair, mode separating the popular trails would relieve a lot of the existing tensions between cyclists & walkers and would make them safer, IMO, not more dangerous. (Not a simple widening, but...

    I've been hit before, by a person who never looked to the right before proceeding from a stop into a crosswalk. I've also driven a lot, and while I'm sometimes surprised to see a pedestrian or...

    ooh, how 'bout failure to obey "no turn on red when pedestrian is present" and similar? or even just failure to obey "no turn on red". Failure to look right when turning on red? (haha, I know, but...

    If that's the part they're citing, and the person in question was crossing in front of a stopped car at a crosswalk, does that mean that ACPD believes that pedestrians may never cross the street in...

    And if there's an actual legal basis for that, or just what an officer decides arbitrarily? Whether there's any training on the topic or published guidelines?

    I don't see that as a problem worth trying to solve. The width and layout of the lane makes it pretty self-limiting for trying to go significantly over a reasonable speed. I know if I was trying to...

    No, I think they're great on roads or dedicated cycle facilities. My main concern is mode separation with pedestrians.

    That looks more like chain drop than chain suck--lower chain looks like it got hooked while loose, rather than having the top surface of the lower chain stuck to the ring. It's usually not impossible...
