Yeah, get ride of the bike lanes.

I, for one, would love riding down the middle of the right hand lane of Dexter with 50 other cyclists. Sounds pretty rad.

It's faster and it's more fun.

Fucking dog humping humor, for christ's sake.

I do think one officer, representing .05% of SPD, writing 25% of all cycling tickets written by SPD is pretty ridiculous. That does not represent effective policing, even if you are are for a crackdown on cyclists. It's a waste of his time and all our money.

Anyways, according to my own observations most folks on bikes are reasonably law-abiding, at least as much as the average driver or pedestrian is. I see drivers run stop signs every single day, and drivers running reds downtown is a frequent enough occurrence that I don't trust the green light until I look for cars. Of course I see cyclists doing the same, but it's not like people are blazing through reds on a regular basis (really, that's not happening).

This is just how the road works. Most people break the laws they think they can break. Some go further.

One thing I know for sure: I would never, ever drive to work during rush hour. You'd have to be nuts to do it. Riding a bike is clearly a better way of getting around town (assuming you have the ability to do so, of course, and most people do).

I ride my bike to Capitol Hill every day and see at least 5 or 6 pronto bikes being used every time.

Why hasn't anyonyond rose noticed that the toilet czar job is not open to the general public?

Whose resources are you talking about? What does "gone to remember an important community leader" mean? The owner of the pot shop should have erected a statue instead of opening a pot shop?

I'm sorry, I just don't follow. Is it problematic for the gas station to sell gas and beer rather than using their resources to remember an important community leader? Is it problematic for the bike shop to sell bikes rather than using their resources to remember an important community leader? Is it problematic for the bar to sell liquor rather than using their resources to remember an important community leader?

I am a little amused he's only lived here for 4.5 years.

"“Putting a weed store on 23rd & Union is problematic because the murder of Troy Hackett happened in the parking lot next door to the church,” Flores continued."

This confuses me. Define problematic. Please convince me that there is some sort of connection between a legal pot store and those murdered.
