-> Two Rhode Island state lawmakers have re-introduced a bill (2016-S 2005, 2016-H 7008: http://bit.ly/1UOugIE) to make it safer for pedestrians this winter by requiring the Department of Transportation to clear snow from state-controlled highway overpasses and overhead walkways with significant pedestrian traffic. Most municipalities require property owners to clear the sidewalks in front of their land. When pedestrians get to an overpass, which isn't in front of anyone's property, they have to walk out in the street or climb over a snow bank. The bill would give the DOT 24 hours after the end of a snowstorm to clear the overpasses and walkways. http://bit.ly/1OhRwNF

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
