    This is a periennel question -- from that area, do you brave the Pike for a bit (from Barton to Orme) in order to minimize hills and have a more direct route, or do you go north, (via the Memorial...

    If you only step out when the car is 100% stopped, I doubt you'll ever get a chance to step out. Even when I see cars to "let" me cross, if I don't start going out as they slow, they'll speed right...

    The yield v. stop is not what opens the door to assigning fault to the pedestrian -- it's the "in disregard of approaching traffic" part

    While this is practically the way to minimize your chance of being hit, that doesn't make any sense as the standard in the law, because it would negate the part of the law that requires drivers to...

    This is how my father-in-law crashed his tandem (with my mother-in-law on the back) -- he was taking a call through speakerphone while riding. He couldn't hear well, so leaned down toward the...

    This is only true in the MV now - DC passed a law to change contributory negligence.

    I know it's frustrating, because ACPD isn't perfect. But they have come a long way in the last few years, and at last month's BAC meeting, it sounded like they had heard the message that it makes...

    You could also look into getting a folding bike, which you can take with you on Metro and use around DC.

    But I also think you could rock a folding scooter, like this one, or even a scoot-case,...

    We need your views to support the PBL, and on two specific issues:
    1) On the northbound side of Veitch, for the first 100 feet or so from Wilson, neither option has any protection for the bike lane....

    It also looks like the County may be adding street parking to Troy Street. If you think that adding private vehicle storage to public space that could be used for things like parklets and playgrounds...

    I'm not sure. You seem to keep doubling down on your statement that crossing outside a crosswalk is illegal everywhere in the U.S. That's simply not true, unless you define "crosswalk" as "anywhere...

    That's just tautology. You define "unmarked crosswalk" as any place that a pedestrian may cross a road that's not a striped crosswalk. So, yes, it is technically illegal to cross outside of a marked...

    I was referring to how dark it was in the context of whether it was reasonable for the woman to expect to be seen. I don't think it's reasonable to expect someone to know whether a car that's coming...

    This statement is not true. For example, in Virginia, it is legal to cross where two roads intersect as long as the road you're crossing has a speed limit of 35 mph or less.

    Has anyone checked...

    I mean, yes, but when have you ever seen an American police officer apologize? Admit that there's any possibility he was wrong? It's not often.

    I get that everyone is judging the woman. From the video, it seems like it was very dark out and she picked a horrible place to cross. But as has been mentioned, this is a video, and it may not have...
