    If they geofenced parking areas, which I'd assume they would do if impoundment was actually a penalty for illegal scooter parking, they would have a pretty good idea where the scooter was parked and...

    Since the scooter companies have location data on all their scooters, it would be pretty easy to demonstrate you are committing fraud and have you criminally charged. It wouldn't be much difference...

    I like the idea of scooters and the dockless model, but there being scattered about is a serious safety issue, particularly at night or in periods of low visibility.

    My thought on regulating them...

    It seems like you'd need railroad crossing gates to prevent cars turning right on red.

    From VDOT's estimated counts, that part of Quincy St is 12k per day - https://www.virginiadot.org/info/resources/Traffic_2018/AADT_000_Arlington_2018.pdf. By NACTO that should require PBLs.

    The bridge over Spout Run is right next to the highway. Also the part coming out of Bon Air park.

    WWB is similar in length to the segments on I-66 inside the sound wall and has similar noise issues. There are a couple similar sections on the Custis trail where the trail is between the highway...

    I don't agree that most people won't use such facilites. The WWB trail is quite well utilized despite it being next to a 10 lane highway with only a jersey barrier, VA portion excepted with the nice...

    While I don't think it's ideal to have the trail inside the sound wall, I would rather have more trails that are separated, than worry about them being next to a highway.

    In my case it would...

    If they are following the NACTO guidelines, then a buffered or protected bike lane would be the recommended treatment along Quincy St depending on the traffic volume. If the traffic volume is above...

    This, plus VA's contributory negligence laws are what concern me. If you ride in the regular lane and get ran over by a reckless driver, does the single fact you weren't in the PBL limit your...

    Or you can just walk.

    My kids have one, and to say they have a high learning curve would be an understatement.
  14. I think the law is unclear in VA if you would be...

    I think the law is unclear in VA if you would be allowed to use the regular travel lane for traveling. Bikes are supposed to stay to the right under VA law, unless impractical. To me, that means by...

    Regardless if the critics like/dislike the laws, policies, and master plans, those are what planners are supposed to follow, not what some critics bring up as disliking current policy. If the...

    Is the city even following it's own policies in this design. If they aren't, that would be the strongest place to start. Staff can try and accommodate outspoken critics of bike/pedestrian...

    This may be a best case scenario.

    The beg buttons at Barcroft and on the 4MR trail at Walter Reed are inconsistent depending on whether the light cycle got triggered by cross traffic. I'm ok...

    They added beg buttons to the W&OD crossing. They better not be planning to actually turn them on, as that would be a big downgrade in service for trail users.

    Now that the crosswalks are striped, you can see that the SW corner of Walter Reed and 4 Mile Run requires either navigating a chicane or going outside the crosswalk to actually get to/from the...

    I took photos of the "raised" crosswalk and it's basically not raised at all. If I had to guess, there's about 3" of grade difference and it's over such a long distance, you could drive through...

    I hope they take a second look at the NE corner connection to the Walter Reed northbound bike lane. Right now a cyclist must either merge into the traffic lane to get around the curb or jump the...

    Shirlington/Kenmore has beg buttons much of the time, though sometimes at random times the pedestrian light comes on its own.

    The county recently rebuilt this crossing, but did it with a bunch of half baked safety measures, so the results aren't surprising. They could have raised the crossing and painted it as a bike path...

    From what I saw today it's a half raised crossing. It's not fully raised like the recent change on T.R. Island's parking lot crossing. There's still a chute to navigate through and a rather abrupt...

    When I ran by there yesterday you could see the new curb cut from the Arlington Mill trail side and it went to road level, not raised. The refuge has been shaped out and is in progress.
