Cheryl replied to Dean Bekken's discussion Agro Teen Threatened to Shoot
"Agree. I actually had a good response from CPD after a driver exited his car and threatened to kill me, although it didn't go far in the end. But I figure at least it's on record in the event the guy does the same, or worse, to another…"

"Mobility Works van, southbound Elston bike lane 1/5/16. (And thanks to the fellow bike commuter who came along and de-escalated a situation that was getting ugly!) "

Cheryl replied to Kevin C Dormant's discussion Road Construction Report(s)
"Absolutely agree with this. Ideally, a bike-specific light would be added to allow bikes to proceed north on Elston without motor vehicle traffic moving at the same time to really reduce the danger of vehicles cutting over through the bike lane."

"Getting every person on a bike may not be feasible, but getting enough people on a bike so that every person knows someone who bikes is very much achievable. Several people I know have become more mindful and respectful of bicyclists after…"

"As an FYI, I once called 911 about an enraged motorist who alleged he was an off-duty police officer. Once I mentioned the words "police officer," 911 would not do anything further and referred me to internal affairs. Which, of course, led…"

Cheryl replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"One thing that makes me crazy about all of the bike lanes the city is adding is the lack of adequate signage about vehicles being prohibited and the penalties. There are signs for loading zones, parking, snow days, etc but nothing about bike…"
