Cleaning out some old draft posts, here are a couple of links from 2014 that got lost in the pile-up. One is from an episode of Diane Rehm's show and one is from Dr. Gridlock. There's not a lot in these that you couldn't see or hear today.
The Diane Rehm Show is about road safety and a 2014 report from the Governors Highway Safety Association on the increase in bicycle fatalities, which I wrote about at the time. They discuss the Idaho Stop, protected bike lanes, lower speed limits, complete streets, helmets and helmet laws, and scofflaw cycling.
Interestingly Rehm referred to Klein as "Chief Operating Officer of Bird" but later corrected that to Bridj. It's a funny accident since Bird hiring Klein isn't the craziest thing I could hear (I bet he wished he'd been involved in Bird instead of Bridj, which has ceased operation in the US).
She also has Jason Clark of the Log Cabin Republicans of San Francisco who was an advocate of proponent for Proposition L to "Restore Transportation Balance." It didn't seek balance, but rather cars first. It failed.
The so-called “Restore Transportation Balance” initiative [has] the intent of rolling back the City’s Transit-First policy and devoting more public space and funding to (free) parking and less to bikeways, transit lanes and pedestrian safety improvements.
The Dr. Gridlock story covered the usual topics.
