Not worthy of the public's trust

I found this on another list and I thought this was good so I thought I would share; from Bruce Rosar:

Those who operate heavy equipment (i.e., most motor vehicles) within the public ways pose an extraordinary danger to the person and property of others. Our government already keeps a watch on such people. If you feel that the government should keep a closer watch, please feel free to advocate for that.

What's the best way to accommodate bicyclists?

<img width="160" height="106" align="left" src="http://www.baltimorespokes.org/images/articles/20050802212958597_1.jpg" alt="">Transportation professionals and advocates don't always agree on the answer to this common question. Is a bike lane better than a path or a wider lane with no stripe? There is no simple answer and a lot depends on the unique circumstances of a particular roadway in a particular community. But, by reviewing more than 20 bicycle facility selection guides from the US and other countries, consultant Michael King's latest report for the PBIC suggests that there are indeed some common ranges or parameters within which different bicycle facility types seem to work best.
