    Default Collision at Lee and N. Lynn in Rosslyn

    Surprised this article hasn't been posted yet. Sounds like a terrible situation.

    Lindsey Kelley was cycling home from work at 8:00 p.m. and said she entered the crosswalk at Lee Highway and N. Lynn Street on a “go” signal, when she was struck by a four-door sedan coming off I-66 and turning right toward the Key Bridge.
    By her account, the collision was the driver’s fault.

    At the Virginia Hospital Center, however, Kelley was visited by the responding U.S. Park Police officer and issued a ticket for “disregarding traffic signs or road markings,” which may cost her $70, not including U.S. District Court fees.

    It is not uncommon for ArlCo Board Members to attend BTWD. I hope y'all will... um.... share your thoughts with any Board Members you might see.

    I hope she has a lawyer. It's not clear to me that the park police would even have jurisdiction here. I also hope she files a complaint for the officer writing a ticket without even talking to her. That stuff just has to stop.

    I also hope that a certain retiring Representative could be contacted and help stop this nonsense by a certain federal agency.

    A black SUV almost took me out on Eads this morning. I didn't catch the plate.
