    Lifetime brake pads

    Use your breaks only occasionally particularly if your ER and hospitalilzation insurance is good. If you're really easy on them, brake pads can last a lifetime.

    Saw a Cabi northbound of Lynn nearly get right hooked by a BMW turning east on I-66 ramp. Absolutely the driver's fault. Learned a few minutes ago that a cyclist was struck in front of my office...

    I'd like to hear from one of the police officers. Why are they ignoring dangerous infractions? When car traffic backs up do they get an earful when the go back to their station at the end of the...

    I've had a Morton's neuroma for several years. Typically these are caused or aggravated by tight shoes. Mine came on after my doctor put me on statins and the nerves in my feet went haywire. (It's a...

    The contrast between Arlington and Alexandria is remarkable. In Arlington, the police seem utterly incapable of any meaningful traffic enforcement at the Intersection of Doom. Last week, I was taking...

    By not doing anything (in either the car or bike incident) the police officer is sending the message that it is okay run the red light. This is worse than not being there at all.

    The bike lanes could use some prominent markings like green paint. The biggest short coming is that they don't connect to bicycle infrastructure on either end of SHL. I wouldn't be surprised if...
