Steve Weeks replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Bike Lane Would Have Three-Foot Wide Curbs on Clybourn in Old Town
"Thanks, h'! I'd totally ride that lane if it were plowed that well. ;-) Here's the "protected" lane on Jackson near Crane High... note the condition of the street vs the bike lane. I rest my case. FWIW, I sent this image to…"

Steve Weeks replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Bike Lane Would Have Three-Foot Wide Curbs on Clybourn in Old Town
"Jackson Blvd was not plowed from Loomis to Halsted... and it's not even "protected". A couple sections of "protected" lanes (Jackson further west, and Lake Street, IIRC) I crossed were not plowed either. Steve"

Steve Weeks replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Bike Lane Would Have Three-Foot Wide Curbs on Clybourn in Old Town
"Will they be plowed in winter? Based on recent past experience with "buffered" and (post-)protected bike lanes, the answer will be "no". Then the bikes will be out in traffic in a reduced lane width. Steve"

Steve Weeks replied to Louis K's discussion Rear Facing Camera Catches Driver (Deliberately?) Hit Cyclist
"Weapons-grade Denial is in evidence here. The driver was out of the lane, and if he *really* didn't see the cyclist, there is something wrong with his visual system. I suspect this was intentional. Not to reduce the outrage at this incompetent…"

"Too bad you couldn't show her this: Parking in Bike Lanes. Also too bad the police probably don't care. Steve "

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I think this is pretty clear: "We will never be generally accepted and respected unless and until the majority of us act like we are traffic." What I mean is that respect and tolerance tend to be mutual and reciprocal. I'm sure there…"

"This is the "glass ceiling" for cycling IMO. We will never be generally accepted and respected unless and until the majority of us act like we are traffic. Steve Rock on long haired dude that doesn't understand simple traffic laws…"

"I've found that a really loud air horn can help here. The driver doesn't expect such a loud noise from a bike. But staying out of that situation is probably best. I try to pass buses on the left if I'm going faster or I see a stop…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"You: Second in line, crossing my path, at a 4-way stop sign. Me: Waited for the car in front of you, then proceeded into the intersection. You: Decided to bolt through the intersection on the "coat tails" of your predecessor, passing just…"

"Exactly. And you know the drivers behind the car that's granting inappropriate right-of-way are thinking it's the bike's fault. Steve "

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I agree. More bikes need to practice good traffic etiquette if we expect car drivers to do the same. One of my pet peeves is when a car arrives at a stop-sign-regulated intersection before I do, but expects me to go first. It's nice of the…"

"I may have been wrong about "illegal" (Bike Law) as the statute seems to apply only to motor vehicles. However, the consensus among accident lawyers and the Illinois Department of Transportation is that it's dangerous. Yes, there are…"

"You: Hipster dude on a Divvy heading East on Jackson bike lane. I didn’t think it was worth the effort to say “on your _____” as I passed you since I noticed your prominent white ear buds.I guess when you pay $75 a year you…"
