@zz This question has been bothering me all day.

Valuable time lost. One might almost conclude TPD is incompetent.

Where is Treed Murray's comment? I've seen it in the sidebar for days.

Kinkade is back on the road. Careful, he gets all angried up.

She broke Sam's skull leg and wrist. Then ran. Then lied. Quite the humanitarian.

Thanks for being the squeaky wheel.

"In both cases the bike riders who crashed were University of Arizona students."
Damn. College at 15. That's some good parenting there.

@3wheeler You barely avoided hitting a black guy by dint of noticing the "whites of his eyes." Let's let that amazing claim steep for awhile.

So there have been "several" motorcycle chases on The Loop, according to Rohrer. Interesting.

Wouldn't bicycles be more appropriate? A little light exercise never hurt anyone. From the county's website: "If it doesn't have a motor, it's good to go on The Loop."
There's a definite correlation between speed and perceived passing distance. A pass of 50 mph at 5 feet will feel like 2 feet. So it's hard to separate the two factors. But if forced to choose, give me the extra space. I'd like to see the Legislature increase the legal passing minimum from 3 feet to 5 feet. Not that it would ever be enforced in non-collisions, but it would be a nice statement.

"At some intersections, the tracks move over to hug the curb, which can lead to an otherwise avoidable squeeze. A little wobble here can lead to big trouble."
... jumped out at me.

Yes, Steve. The green paint seems to fill in the entire length of the eastbound Ajo crosswalk. Neither a box nor a guide. A new one on me.

Glad she's got Irene's looks. But seriously, this chokes me up a little.

With all respect, the city is an ass when it comes to bicycling, and it needs to hear more post-installation critiques.

@PlanckLength @sluggh You totally busted me on my lie-detector suggestion. I can appreciate the blind-spot argument but am also interested in seeing how strict liability statutes work elsewhere.

@PlanckLength @sluggh I suggest that the presumption that motorists never lie be tested. It's done elsewhere.
@PlanckLength @sluggh Absent Albert's version of events, that will be the presumption, yes. Interesting how that works. The claim of a "single-witness suicide swerve" also seems to be compelling around these parts, far less so in other countries.
