    Does the city really need to “study” protected bike lanes on 18th/19th? I thought this was the plan all along with the floating bus islands already in place. How will we ever get a functional bike network if every new protected lane needs to be studied for a year?

    According to the Denverite article “The plan goes up for a vote before a city committee next week.” Any idea which committee this is and how we could comment on the plan?

What Will It Take for Sacramento to Make Walking Safer in Poor Neighborhoods?

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.

Now, reporters are looking into why there are so few marked crosswalks in one of Sacramento's poorest areas.
