    I’d like to comment on the fact that most of those cars probably sped 10 mph over the speed limit only to sit and wait for 5-10 min. Post a CHP there for 2-3 days and slap a fine on them. Then put up a changeable message sign that says “stopping on the shoulder results in $$$ fine”.

    RE: SF Bike Share “Spreading” to Other Cities

    This implies that the program started in SF and moved outwards. Last time I checked not even the smallest attempt has been made at actually implementing a bike share program here.

    These are some mind-bending press releases completely devoid of reality. I guess it takes an imaginary bike share program to complement an imaginary bike network. Do the people who work for SF even live in the City?
