    No. I'm sure it happens just enough that the local PD can claim they're not ignoring it, but it's certainly not something people expect. I also haven't seen anyone enforce "no turn on red when...

    The dictionary definition does not apply to car speeds. E.g., in many places you can be ticketed for going the speed limit in the left lane of a highway because OF COURSE the speed limit is less...

    It's actually up over 11 years now. A car is also a large enough resource that at the end of it's life it's worth scrapping. The scooters tend to end up in a landfill or a river or a giant pile of...

    The future is single use personal transportation devices. That avoids all the issues with sharing! A drone will drop a brand new scooter wherever you ask for one and at the end of your trip you just...

    Yup. This is a case of disability rights advocates and cycling advocates being in opposition. I would think that these designs must be bad even for disabled people because they tend to attract a lot...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.)
