Baltimore County has the distinction of ranking among the top 10 jurisdictions in the country based on the Complete Streets policy the County Council initiated that takes into account the use of roads by cyclists and pedestrians, as well as motorists.
[B' Spokes: While special thanks to Tom Quirk and David Marks are in order, I really must highlight the large discrepancy between near the best in policies and near the worst outcomes for cyclists and pedestrians. We also have this problem on the state level, maybe we should get some award for the best double talking politicians or something. LAB loves our policies`at the state level but the results on the ground are still a bit different, like a bike mode share less than the national average (just one quick stat among several), not bad for being in or near the top 10 bike friendly states. :/]
