    I saw a mangled bike and a person being taken into an ambulance on a stretcher this Sunday around 2 in the afternoon. It was only about 100 yards after the Car-free area on JFK ended and I was wondering if there’d be any more info on what happened.

    Just another reason why the parking protected bike lanes are safer than the previous arrangement and why we need a car free Golden Gate Park (or at least no through streets).

  • New post:  “One Family’s Energy Evolution: How We Dropped Our Utility Bills by 80%.” 

    Mostly about household energy efficiency and renewable energy, but livable streets folks might be interested in the discussion near the end of how much we saved by downsizing one car and biking and taking transit instead, as well as the savings from our teens not driving.

    Matier & Ross’ bias is very common among motorists: even one inch of roadway dedicated to bicycle infrastructure is somehow an oppressive, totalitarian takeover that completely spoils the bloody car party.
