ketoguychicago replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?

ketoguychicago replied to Steve Johnson's discussion Nationwide trail
"Indeed, and as mentioned different people with different priorities, offer enough (at least we expect) pooled interest.  My hunch is that like with the DNR, being able to pool a coalition of support sure goes a long way.  "

ketoguychicago replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"My hunch is you're right Argonne.  From the active transportation alliance: "Drivers distracted by their devices are a well-documented, rising cause of traffic crashes, but there are a growing number of pedestrians, too, who can…"

ketoguychicago replied to Steve Johnson's discussion Nationwide trail
"It is an interesting idea although it doesn't solve much of a pressing problem.  It really would be nice to ride for a month across the country, but net gain of it versus the cost would vary greatly by person.  As with many things,…"

ketoguychicago replied to Meg's discussion Ald King 4th Ward Bike Lane Meeting
"She may be able to offer some insights on this matter as well during the event: https://www.thechainlink.org/forum/topics/robbers-target-cyclists-on-lakefront-trail-in-kenwood-police"

ketoguychicago replied to Len Krietz's discussion Kelly Catlin Passes away
"Tom's right. More broadly, and maybe of help in circumstances such as these, general head protection is a good idea.  A friend of the family suffered a nearly identical injury in the same circumstances while walking two dogs that got…"

"Or Fed-Ex, with even deeper pockets. See picture below.  Possible outcomes include the suit being dismissed, or that it is found in favor of the cab company or delivery company.  They'll bring their A-game to court to be sure and try…"

ketoguychicago replied to Bobby Cobby's discussion Anyone considering doing the #RedCupProject in Chicago?
"One reason we didn't want the plastic bollards or concrete dividers is that the the city has to run out and buy more equipment (debt) to keep the bike lanes clear.  Whereas now, the street sweepers and city plows can keep them clear, a…"

"Yes, I saw my alderman fixing one last Saturday morning - not the snow day, the Saturday before.  By that Saturday afternoon it had been run over again. "

ketoguychicago replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Final phase of Navy Pier Flyover
"That is cool Tom, I like those shots of all those old switches and relays and what not. "

ketoguychicago replied to Michael Neal's discussion Three Floyds Warning
"Sure thing, this is a broader and related lament in that various businesses - not confined to the crew at Three Floyds - fancy themselves managing the environment outside their door, patios, patio attachments or rails, etc. and they have their…"

ketoguychicago replied to Michael Neal's discussion Three Floyds Warning
"In perhaps a related matter, I'm aware of more than one business that for one reason or another doesn't like bikes on sidewalks right outside their business. In some cases it's an issue of pedestrian congestion but there are other…"

ketoguychicago replied to Bobby Cobby's discussion Anyone considering doing the #RedCupProject in Chicago?
":) Good morning Tom, To your point, I actually had a reply that went something like "Wait, our bike lanes are dangerous? This ought to draw our friend clp out of the woodwork...""

ketoguychicago replied to Bobby Cobby's discussion Anyone considering doing the #RedCupProject in Chicago?
"Are we trying to make the case that a bicycle and rider in a bike lane represents a clear and present danger to the cyclist, and therefor in the interests of public safety, cycling on city streets should be prohibited?  If that's the goal,…"

ketoguychicago replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Final phase of Navy Pier Flyover
"Jeepers!  Next time I go over the handlebars I'll wonder if the government should have a larger role in healthcare.  "

ketoguychicago replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Final phase of Navy Pier Flyover
"Yeah, that sentence isn't so precisely written - is it the bottleneck that sees that 100k weekend volume or is it the 18.5mile trail...  But still.    Some other insights - The article notes that it a 1750 feet bridge costs…"
