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.

The B&A Trail Traverses the Universe

Bike Paths

A July 29, 2005 Baltimore Sun article details a partnership between Friends of Anne Arundel County and the Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Department to develop "Planet Walk." The large-scale public art installation will be complete in 2007. But for now, fans of art and trails can see the sun and Pluto - which towers 20 feet above the surface of the smooth, paved trail.

What's the best way to accommodate bicyclists?

<img width="160" height="106" align="left" src="" 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.

You bike-a-phobs!

police are seeking witnesses

<img width="97" height="120" align="left" src="" alt=""> A female cyclist was attacked on the CCT Trail on May 21. She was struck several times and her bicycle stolen. One week later a male

slaying has been identified by the May 21 victim as her assailant.

As convictions can be difficult to obtain the police are seeking more information and witnesses. The likelihood of a conviction may
depend on how much quality information the police can acquire.
