    But the chicken (or the egg) is progressing (or something like that; metaphors schmetaphors). There are a lot more people on bikes than there used to be, and I find that many drivers are...

    I have not played before, but once in the past I looked at the time/reward ratio, and it seemed pretty high. Converted to $/hr it came out to something under $5 if I recall. So it seemed like not...

    I encountered a guard about two months ago on the Army-Navy side who signaled for me to stop. I "failed" to notice and went on (I also "didn't hear" her yelling after me). The guard at the top also...

    That's correct. The BAC lobbied for a some time to put this intersection on "full recall," which means that the walk signal comes on every cycle without the need to push any buttons.

    If the lane is not wide enough to allow me to ride on the right--and allow room for the driver to pass me with three feet of clearance without partially crossing into the oncoming lane--then I will...

  11. Nationals Park bike valet - is it open for 2021 season?

    Has anyone attended a Nationals game or ridden by during a game and noted whether the bike valet is open? The Nationals website indicates that it is, but I want to doublecheck before I roll over...

    I was around and a daily commuter in 2004. Honestly, I don't recall them being an issue while riding. Wear your sunglasses I guess. Otherwise, it seems they either bounced off or were easily flicked...

    These things you point out in your second paragraph terrify me even more.

    Okay. I took the bumper sticker off my original post. That sentence, of course, is still in the article, but is surrounded by more context. The study is available for anyone to read for themselves.

    My bumper sticker is accurate: The simulations "completely avoided or mitigated" 100% of the crashes. I do not take responsibility for how the journalist wrote the article, but I did read the study...

    I skimmed through the actual study. In all of the cases in which the original driver was drunk or drowsy or stupid, the autonomous car was not. Those crashes didn't happen, which I believe is a...
