    Rose might be technically wrong but since some traffic signals give less than 5 seconds of walk before starting a 20 second countdown, he is pracically right.

    Trucker who killed Amelie Le Moullac will not be charged?! Are you kidding me? Not enough evidence to convince a jury? WTF? This case was about as clear as it gets.

    So, what we’re saying is that, as a society, we think a driver shouldn’t have to look before turning. If they don’t, and there’s a cyclist there, oh well, just an “accident”? You gotta to be kidding me. Does the city really think they are ever going to get large number of people riding bikes if they are going to be treated as second-class citizens? This is so utterly discouraging.

It sounds like a Streetsblog article almost word for word. I kid you not. “Transit Gives Millennials an Off-Ramp from Cars.” My eyes nearly popped out of my head.
