"I think there will be an improvement, they are taking away the center lane and widening the bike lanes.  There will be better (and more) pedestrian crossings.  I am excited that they are doing something!"

"A few times.  After an accident, or just being loose after 1000's of miles on many different surfaces.  I can't believe i'm even answering that question.  Bikes need maintenance, if you use them.  "

I kinda blew the stop sign.  The girl behind me did as well. He stopped us both, and gave us a warning.  I stop there 90% time, today's flow was just so that I didn't, probably because there was no crossing guard today.
