Safe Routes to School - Who's walking in Maryland?

Biking in MarylandONLY TWO SCHOOLS!?!?!? OK we have till October but I hope there is a better turn out then this, so if you have kids in school give then a nudge to make a walkable and bikeable Maryland.

Planned activities in Maryland

Trader Joe's provides healthy snacks, the County provides fun giveaways, the teachers lead warm-up exercises, and we walk on a sidewalk that was built only 6 years ago, in our community that is nearly 50 years old.

- BURNING TREE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, BETHESDA

The Green School Club is sponsoring this for the second year in a row in order to promote walking to school.

- URBANA MIDDLE SCHOOL, URBANA

Bumper stickers

Biking in Marylandimage
OK, I'm experimenting here. Is there an interest in this as a bumper sticker? If yes check out Baltimore Spokes on Cafe Press. Note at this time only Cafe Press is making money on this, at some point in the future I may add a bit to be donated to One Less Car whose efforts in Annapolis were the genesis of getting these out around Baltimore.

Bus drivers gone wild: The greatest hits

Biking Elsewhere...Portland police, however, have quickly come through with training videos exhibiting the less-than-polite, profanity-ridden responses that traffic cops get from some drivers they ticketed last year.

"I don't see why you have to pick on a bus driver," one operator caught blowing through a red light tells Officer Josh Ladd before grabbing the citation from the cop's hand, saying "give me that ****ing thing."

Ladd videotaped these two stops last year while patrolling Portland in an unmarked car designed to catch aggressive drivers. In this week's column, Ladd insisted that the frequency of TriMet buses blowing through red lights has become "absolutely appalling."

Judging from this video, the same could be said about the way some bus drivers treat officers who catch them committing violations that clearly put other drivers on the road at risk.

Complete Streets in Delaware

Biking ElsewhereAt the first Delaware Bike Summit last Friday, March 24, Governor Jack Markell signed a Complete Streets Executive Order. The Delaware DOT now will be required, whenever possible, to incorporate all transportation modes into road design and maintenance.

"We can agree, certainly, that bicycles are inexpensive and environmentally friendly, but there's also no escaping the reality that the vast majority of our transportation infrastructure is designed for cars and trucks," said Markell.

The 275 attendees also heard from Complete Streets advocate and friend Michael Ronkin, whose keynote speech emphasized the need road diets to slow traffic and make room for bicyclists and pedestrians. "We need to make changes because roads are extremely inefficient when used only by one mode of transportation," Ronkin said. "We can significantly raise the capacity of our roads by including other forms of transportation."
