Tim writes that he "decided to take a ride on [the Washington Blvd Trail featured on Sunday] to see firsthand. I was riding home from the Pentagon area along the Washingon Blvd. trail when I arrived at the aftermath of yet another rear end collision at one of the crosswalks. A nice looking BMW had rear ended a Volkswagen, which had presumably slowed to yield to a pedestrian or cyclist. I should mention that I have been using these crossings for years, and it is a constant battle of who is more chicken -- you or the car traffic. Few, if any, vehicles observe the speed limit, and even fewer yield to traffic in the crosswalks."
Also, nice photo, right? The sky came out looking cool. Must have an iPhone.
