    Default Crash on GW Pwky

    There has been a crash on the GW Parkway near the airport that has resulted in a vehicle rolling what appears to be near the bike path. Hopefully the persons involved were ok, and no cyclists (or wombats) were involved, but it looks like things might be crowded on MVT on the way home this afternoon.

    +1 on hopes for no injuries, but with a car flipping over on a perfectly straight stretch of the road it seems clearer every day that the GW Parkway is far too dangerous for cars (how many times have cars flown off that northbound curve south of the Trollheim?), while more and more cyclists on the MVT make it dangerous for pedestrians. The solution is clear: Ban cars from the GW Parkway and make it bicycles only (ebikes in left lane, and maintain the snow plowing), and make the MVT pedestrians only.

    I propose a new name for the GW Parkway which better describes its use since people certainly aren't driving on it to enjoy the parkland around them: GW Speedway.
