Also, @33: Please see the last paragraph:

6. Crosswalks
Seattle’s SMC 11.44.100 gives bikers using crosswalks “all the rights and duties applicable to a pedestrian under the same circumstances”, meaning that motor vehicles must yield to bikes.

Bicyclists shouldn’t be too bold with this law, however. SMC 11.44.100 also requires bikers to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk and says “No person operating a bicycle shall suddenly enter a crosswalk into the path of a vehicle which is so close that the driver cannot yield safely.”

@33, Being legally able to use and zipping through one without taking any precautions are two different things. Like I said, it's a difficult spot for both parties, but being so quick to want lynch the driver just because they're a driver, is such a SLOG thing to do.

Was the cyclist supposed to be riding in the crosswalk? Many times bikes will fly through c/w's giving zero time to react for drivers. This is a terrible situation, but there are too many variables involved to make any blanket judgments against either party. Although, being that this is SLOG, I'm sure it was just the motorists fault.

I can't get behind a sales tax increase, so I will continue to vote no. Also, with the kind of money this city must see from parking, commercial property taxes and tourism, I think they could find better sources of funding rather than sticking it to the people that can least afford it.

Stuck in Utah, the private club laws were reversed a few years ago, not before the 2002 Olympics.

@ 13, I think it has something to do with the inherent God complex, psychotics and theists feel.
