On the 10th day of Safety Myths, my DOT gave to me…FHWA says so!

By Don Kostelec
The 10th day is a potpourri of items illustrating how the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a misunderstood organization, by both transportation agencies that look up to them and the public who advocates for safer walking and bicycling investments.

[This is a great series, check it out things like: On the 12th day of Safety Myths, my DOT gave to me…12-foot travel lanes!
“Breaking the law to save time? If you’re a speeding driver, traffic engineers try to keep you safe. If you’re on foot far from the crosswalk, tough luck.”

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.
