    Mass disruption protest + excellent PR - flex commuters(stayed home + rode metro + rode bikes) = easiest commute ever.

    Had to ride Florida Avenue from Bladensburg Rd NE to 9th Street NW yesterday and saw the bike lane they installed. What a trash-filled, debris filled, POS. It's about 30 inches wide and unridable....

    I drove to work yesterday. I never do that. It was awful, terrible, painful, slow and expensive. $25 to park for the day? At that rate I've saved $100,000 over the last 20 years (I know, I know,...

    Sorry for getting lazy with the terminology. Technically it's an "accessible route" not a ramp (same source, 206.2) and the maximum slope for accessible routes is 1:20 (403.1, 403.3). When you get...

    Two pedestrian bridges over Lubber Run behind the Lubber Run Amphitheater were washed away. That's just off of Four Mile Run so probably count in that total.

    Edited for update from neighborhood: "Clarification - the pedestrian bridges on the main W&OD trail are ok, some trees block the path just north of the turtle pond, but otherwise good. The bridges...

    A logical and rational pro-cyclist segment. Worth a watch. It emphasizes the second part of the question by concluding, no, it doesn't matter if they think they're above the law because it's not a...

    Here's the thing though. Even if you or I could wave a magic wand and get every cyclist to operate according the regs and the Universal Truths of Kindness (TM), the C.A. would still say they want...

    Hey Mr. Head Down in your Phone with Headphones on. It's a bad idea to walk exactly along the yellow line on the Ft. Cass Trail downhill, especially on the curve where the vines narrow the trail. I...

    The car side of the sign should be white and the bike side of the sign should be yellow.

    Still, last week, with an earthmover and 4 construction workers taking up the bike lane and me in the main...

    According to DOT sign standards white signs indicate requirements (speed limit, one way, etc.), yellow signs indicate advice (curve ahead, reduce speed ahead, etc.). By using a white sign they are...

    Bicycles have now been restricted from taking the lane on Quincy Street. They must use the bike lane according to the new signs mounted on the bollards. The signs were new to me this morning. I can't...

    They have a red light. They have no right of way until the light is green. They don't get to hit you just because you're on a bicycle. But if you're on a bicycle then a driver will claim you were...
