    Oh, that's right. But it reminds me something I've been meaning to post since I noticed it. There IS a stop sign for EB (only) Custis riders at Quinn -- it's WAY up high on the light post a bit before you get to Quinn. It's little - just like the one before you get to the Marriott entrance. There's no stop line. It doesn't even make sense to stop where the sign is (not that it would make sense to stop at that intersection, but still).

    I keep meaning to ask the Arlington engineers what's up with that sign.

    Yeah, this is definitely part of it. And, in fact, just the other day I jaywalked across a large-ish road and a bunch of clueless people went right behind me without even looking. They were just lucky the road was clear for more than just me.

    Also, I guess I just admitted to not always practicing what I preach.
