"OK thanks. Again, I didn't take that particular shot, but I used it because it's one of the most dramatic photos of a Lakefront Trail crash that I've seen. I'm guessing that if you go back and look at photos of female cyclists…"

"Nice!! A+. Nice follow-up by Mr. Greenfield. Glad to hear nobody on the path was injured and that the driver was cited (DWI, negligent driving, operating a motor vehicle without insurance). It would really suck to be hit by a drunk,…"

"That photo is by a Flickr user called Ciscel. Are you referring to the fact that the photos of cyclists we run on Streetsblog Chicago and in my Reader column often feature women and/or people of color? While the demographics of people who bike on…"

"The joke on LSD is the speed limit. A coworker of mine once passed a cop who was already going about 60, and when he got pulled over the cop told him, 'I'm not stopping you because you were speeding, but because you disrespected…"

"The city just needs to recognize very few cars will follow the speed limit and rebuild LSD with barriers and medians designed for 60-70 mph. It's always been one of those weird "don't ask, don't tell" streets you get in big…"

"Be nice to have speed-bumps in problem areas... that would upset many drivers, but it would be a harsh solution."

Steve Fiete replied to Wuffie's discussion LFP - Car Wreck
"Enforcing speed limits on the Drive would probably make the frequency of this occurrence go way down.  Seems like that would not cost much to do."

Tricolor replied to Wuffie's discussion LFP - Car Wreck
"This was on the path towards the north end of the trail a few years ago. The speeds you can reach on Lake Shore Drive really should result in better barriers between the road and the park."
