    The Wynkoop situation is becoming an unbelievable mess. In my opinion it is bordering on outright negligence on the part of a few major players. At the very least it should be recognized that the valet service should be held to a higher level of responsibility in that they are directly enabling the situation (drivers parking in bike lane) which is endangering other legal users of the street (cyclist). And where is DPW or the city itself in all of this? This is simply a terrible design that is going to end with what I fear will be a seriously injured person.

    There is no mention of the bollard-protected gutter and lack of protection on the bike lane. Maybe installing bollards to traffic would actually help curb this problem?

|
Police and city planners in Sacramento have come under scrutiny in the weeks since police were caught on tape assaulting Nandi Cain, Jr., a black man, during a jaywalking stop. Cain, who was legally using an unmarked crosswalk, has since filed a civil rights lawsuit against the city. Now, reporters are looking into why there are so few marked crosswalks in one of Sacramento's poorest areas.
