    No, ban cars as the GWMP is too dangerous for them anyway, give the Parkway to bikes and the MVT to pedestrians. Then all headlight disputes can be remanded to this forum.

    1. Improve the junction of Mount Vernon Trail and Four Mile Run Trail. A traffic circle was proposed as a solution in the National Capital Paved Trails report and the Mount Vernon Trail Corridor Safety study.
    2. Straightening, widening and repaving of the trail from Four Mile Run northward. The Trail Safety study identified the curves and pavement conditions at the south end of the airport has a contributor to a number of crashes.
    3. Improved crossing of the ramp from the airport to the Parkway (it's that one where trail users have a stop sign, but cars often yield, but sometimes they don't)
    4. Gravelly Point bypass trail. There's a concept to create a trail on the west side of Gravelly Point to allow through traffic to avoid the large amount of plane watchers and picnickers.
    5. Something else?
    For number 3, I would like that ramp closed completely. It is not safe for people driving since there is no merge zone and the north exit is safer and faster for people driving. It was closed during trail improvements and the airport still functioned.
