Space Hogs Where You Live

It’s time for another slide show from the Streetsblog Network. Last time, we asked you for images of bike traffic from around the country. You can see the result here.

Many thanks to Streetsblog Network members Bicycle Fixation, Portlandize, Project for Public Spaces, Cyclosity, Cyclelicious and Bike San Diego, as well as all the rest of the contributors and everyone who participated.

International submissions are welcome.

Send them to me at sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org, or tag them with "streetsblog" and "workbike" in Flickr.

Keep those pictures coming.
