Shady John:How do cyclists feel about this?http://www.kpbs.org/news/2017/jan/30/lawyer-calls-traffic-fines-punishment-poor/On the one hand, I have sympathy for people who basically lost the lottery--nearly every motor vehicle driver out there violates the law in one way or another, and these poor bastards are the unlucky ones who got caught. From their point of view, they were just going about their lives doing what everybody does, and then they fell down a rabbit hole...On the other hand, as a cyclist I think every driver bears an absolute responsibility to drive responsibly. The fact that most people get away with driving irresponsibly (and many get away with what amounts to murder) doesn't take away the issue of personal responsibility. If you were guilty and you got caught, suffer the consequences.What do you think?

For the ticket itself, I have empathy for people making mistakes but you don't pick up your phone and talk to mom by accident. This is BS. He needs to get his priorities straight and start taking responsibility for his actions.
Concerned residents from La Jolla, Mission Beach and Pacific Beach gathered at La Jolla Community Center Jan. 30 to unanimously speak out against DecoBike, the City’s bike share program. DecoBike kiosks have not been installed in 92037, but the plan is to place 12-14 stands throughout La Jolla, Bird Rock and La Jolla Shores. The installation date is pending.
The changes in town are disturbing ...Fellow La Jollans, after reading the Jan. 19, 2017 issue of La Jolla Light, I was shocked and alarmed to learn that our fair town is under siege by land, air and sea. No other community of San Diego faces such a combination of horrors: the threat of DecoBikes prowling our palm tree-lined lanes; seals and sea lions commandeering our best beaches and bringing hordes of tourists that flood our shops and restaurants; flotillas of commercial airplanes buzzing our homes. "...what would Dr. Seuss tell us to do?"
... bringing hordes of tourists that flood our shops and restaurants...
The location of the brewery also sits on the southern loop of the Bayshore Bikeway, an ongoing SANDAG project to construct 24 miles of dedicated bike paths circumnavigating the bay, and connecting via ferry between Coronado and downtown. (MAP)While Coronado brewing sets a target date for the restaurant and brewery to open as spring or summer of 2018, it will activate the place as a retail location in time for summer 2017. "We plan on having a mobile beer trailer with 18-20 taps, food trucks, and plenty of outdoor seating," says Chapman.
The old Stowe Trail that has connected Santee to Poway for more than 100 years is slated to open back up in mid-April. The trail travels along the eastern side of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.According to Susie Murphy, executive director of San Diego Mountain Biking Association, the trail has been used by mountain bikers for at least 30 years.
"I'm way into cycling and way into beer," says Rawley Macias, brewer and sole proprietor of Rouleur Brewing Company, the latest craft beer maker to open in Carlsbad's budding scene. While the branding of Macias's startup reflects his cycling interest, it also suggests his broader approach to making beer."That's a type of cycling, a Rouleur," he says, "It's a French word for an all-arounder, a rider who's good at all aspects of cycling," ranging from short sprints to long-distance races. "I like to do a lot of hybrid beers," Macias explains, "I don't stick to one style."
Making Uptown more friendly for bicyclists and pedestrians is a challenging goal drawing nearer to fruition as the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) heads into final design on the proposed Pershing Bikeway project, with construction expected to begin in late 2018.The Pershing Bikeway will provide an enhanced 2.6-mile bikeway along Pershing Drive, with dedicated bikeway and pedestrian facilities in North Park, Golden Hill, Downtown and Balboa Park.The project will include buffered bike lanes, a two-way separated bikeway and an adjacent walking path. The project also features traffic-calming measures to make the roadway safer for both drivers and pedestrians.SANDAG, San Diego’s regional transportation planning agency, on Jan. 20 approved an environmental exemption for the Pershing Bikeway project from the California Environmental Quality Act.“The project just doesn’t have any environmental consequences that rise to the level of being considered impactful,” said Chris Carterette, SANDAG project manager specializing in active transportation. “It doesn’t cause any environmental effects to sensitive habitats or archaeological resources, or make any changes that require some kind of mitigation.”
On March 30, the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) and the North County Transit District (NCTD) rolled out a new app called Compass Cloud, which can be used with both transit systems. Compass Cloud is free to download on any smartphone and allows riders to purchase tickets much easier.
t.e.d:These are great updates. Thanks, OKB!
gottobike:However, I keep looking up and can't help but think there is something missing from these OKB posts.
Although it was not on the agenda and there was no public notice, an in-depth presentation on the Phase 2 of the Torrey Pines Road Corridor Project — set to begin this fall and be completed by Memorial Day 2018 — was given at the April 6 La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) meeting at the Rec Center.Bliss explained that the Corridor Project will create continuity of the sidewalk and buffered bike lanes on both sides of Torrey Pines Road between Prospect Place and La Jolla Shores Drive, among other safety-oriented additions.“Phase 2 is going to put a sidewalk in on the south side of Torrey Pines Road between Amalfi and Hillside and … we are going to put in a HAWK signal, which is a pedestrian-activated crosswalk, about 100 feet west of Princess Street,” he said.
Bike lane and traffic slowingTo create continuity and a safer bicycling path, he said a buffered bike lane would be installed on both sides of the thoroughfare. “A ‘buffered bike lane’ means there is a two-foot (painted) barrier on the side,” he said. To accommodate the new bike lanes, the vehicular traffic lanes would be narrowed; the lane widths would be adjusted to a 10-foot left lane and 11-foot right lane, a two-foot bike lane buffer and a five-foot bike lane.“The narrower lanes will make motorists feel a little pinched, so they will slow down a bit, and the HAWK beacon will provide a break in traffic. The buffered bike lane will suggest a bike corridor, and we think all these measures will slow traffic down,” he said.Trustee Phil Merten agreed.“One of the reasons traffic moves so fast on Torrey Pines Road is that it is designed like a 55-mile-per-hour highway. The curbs are gentle, visibility is good, the lanes are wide, and people feel safe driving 55 miles per hour. As the lanes narrow and the bike lanes start showing up, people will slow down. They will pay a lot more attention. I think it’s going to improve safety significantly,” he said.
The estimated $52-billion raised over the next 10 years will be split between state projects and local city road repairs. But as continually pointed out on their daily show, John and Ken say not one penny of the gas tax will add a new lane of freeway. “It will go for idiotic things like buses and bike lanes,” said host John Cobylt.
Morena Blvd Lane Closure UpdateSome of you may have noticed if you take a cruise down Morena Blvd just south of Balboa Ave the two lane Morena Blvd road drops to 1 and continues to the area just under the Tecolote Rd overpass. The latest is this is a “Temporary Traffic Condition” while the Mid Coast Trolley is being constructed and was requested by SANDAG with approval from City of San Diego.
