I didn’t mention this in the article (probably should have) but, yes, racers/folks riding for exercise should absolutely wear a helmet. I don’t think it should be a *legal* question, though. And, to be honest, every road biker I know wears a helmet. Riding for transportation around cities, to me, is a separate Read more

First of all, I don’t have a law degree, but the lawyer I spoke to for the article does, and he disputes your characterization of what the law is “supposed”to do (I read the law as well and think he’s got a point).

You’re seriously arguing there’s nothing unfair about not re-attaching the tires to a car before giving it back to the customer? That is really your position here?

In complete agreement that induced demand works hand-in-hand with land use patterns. They cannot be separated and we see it with suburban sprawl around the country. Welcome to the urbanism club, good sir. There’s a keg in the back.

Yes! It was a *terrible* riding experience. So much soot and dust, as you can imagine. It’s sometimes surprising to me anyone was willing to give underground trains another go after that.

Yeah I didn’t intend to imply Critical Mass is some kind of perfect thing, just that even cyclists intuitively understand the safety in numbers concept. And yes scooter companies have money (for now...) but money really isn’t the problem. Fantastic bike lanes are very cheap by municipal budget standards. It’s a matter Read more

Indeed! I looked at BRT, but I mostly determined this ranking based on projected ridership. It definitely would have been a longer list (indeed, there are many rail projects cheaper than these, too) but they’re projected to serve fewer riders.

I would not characterize 14% less as “a whole lot less bad” as original commenter did considering the range of far more fuel efficient options out there than a 911 (including a number of hybrid models from Porsche) but I guess this is a matter of opinion.

I chose these models somewhat randomly but it seems a 911 is only very marginally better than an F-150

The black nose of the plane was what convinced me the 80s were multiple times cooler than now.

A bell alerts pedestrians or drivers precisely zero percent of the time, particularly now that everyone wears headphones all the time. My voice, however, is much more effective.

Good question! They got a report from a family member that he was drunk and in distress but drove away from the house. Then they found him and he was outside the car walking around apparently.

I think it’s going to be even longer (assuming you’re talking U.S. only here). The supply chains don’t scale well at all, and potential trade messes only further exacerbate those issues. I’m thinking another 15 years.
