    Default Columbia Pike at Washington Blvd close call (Arlington)

    Saw a cyclist almost get smacked by a car going straight in the right turn only lane this morning. A regular occurrence here, of course.

    I rarely see ACPD doing enforcement here in the past few years. I did see a bunch of them in Pentagon City dealing with the after-effects of an accident.

    A pedestrian was killed at this intersection either earlier this month or late last month. I use this ramp on my commute to work. Despite the much better signage, it's still confusing to a lot of drivers that the right lane is right turn only in the mornings during rush hour. And I'm sure some drivers know but just ignore it. Would be great if you could have a cop directing traffic.

    Police direct traffic in Rosslyn in the mornings, so it wouldn't be unprecedented. Please let ACPD know what you saw and any suggestions you have -- police@arlingtonva.us
