Why Do On Friday What You Can Do On Sunday, The Weekly Chatter

The end of the week round-up is a little late, but as the saying goes…

Weekly Chatter

Thread #1:

  • RT CycleAdagio The worst result of a vehicular cycling culture is the bike being classified, by law, as a vehicle. A bike is not a vehicle.
  • RT jamesschwartz Strictly following our existing road laws on a bike can be dangerous. I use common sense over the law in certain situations #bikeTO
  • RT jamesschwartz On the water, the smaller vessel has the right of way. Larger vessels are accountable for their actions. Not a bad model, huh? #bikeTO
Thread #2:
  • RT StrongTowns Billy Hattaway: Engineers have equated meeting the standards with providing safety. This is not true. #CNU19
  • RT StrongTowns Billy Hattaway: AASHTO standards are not based on safety but on how to keep traffic moving in the system. #CNU19 Speed Kills
  • RT StrongTownsBill Hattaway: AASHTO Green book says we should “use as high a design speed as possible” in our designs. #CNU19 Outdated, utter insanity.
