    My letter was made a part of the public record. If I'd have known, I would have written something witty like Judd.

    FYI, some people in Alexandria (Old Town I guess) are pushing for added stop signs as traffic calming. BPAC is trying to explain why four way stops are not necessarily good for traffic calming (in particular they lead to less respect for stop signs in general, when they are placed at places that are not warranted by cross traffic)

    True. Last year he would have crashed to the ground, breaking a bone but saving the important parts.

    Will emails from people who do not live in Arlington County be helpful?

    There are a lot of cyclists who pass through Arlington on their commutes. Highlight that and say how valuable Arlington's commitment is and how the county is a regional leader. Butter them up!

    One can also say that you like to bike to Clarendon/Ballston, etc. for dinner/entertainment, whatever. In other words, cyclists also spend money in Arlington not just cut through on their commute.
