markphilips:you were right on the spot. It's at Hermosa beach cyclery.
Fitz:The left turn signal never detects me as a cyclist when I'm trying to make a left onto Ingraham (to go north) off of Dana Landing Rd, west of Sea World. I called it in to SD City Streets Division (619-527-7500) and the person there took my name/phone # and said they'd send a tech out to see what's up. We shall see. It would be nice to not have to either hop the lane to trigger the pedestrian walk signal, run the red light, or wait for a car to come trigger the light.
The High Cost of Cheap Roadsby Angie Schmitt on November 16, 2011If there’s one thing we can all agree on, whether you bike, drive, or ride the bus, it’s that American roads are in bad shape. Now the bill is coming due on our poorly maintained infrastructure, and America is coming up short.Roads paved over packed dirt are cheap to build but expensive to maintain, especially when fleets of freight trucks are pulverizing them. Photo: Fleet OwnerAccording to a recent article in Gizmodo, it didn’t have to be this way. Writer Rachel Swaby says America’s predicament has its roots in a fateful decision made more than 50 years ago: to pour asphalt over packed dirt rather than concrete.This made roads cheap to build — encouraging the proliferation of car transportation and freight trucking. But it also made roads very expensive to maintain.
David Engwicht will discuss his experiences as Place Maker for Wodonga, a rural city in Victoria, Australia where he was charged (hired) with turning a run down main street into the vibrant heart of the city. These are a series of conversations on urban design, brought to you by the Urban Design Group at Auckland City Council.
Cities dreamed up by traffic engineers tend to generate, well, traffic gridlock and sprawl.But other dreams are taking hold that include light rail, traffic calming, lively urban villages
PacMUle:(double post... fishing for info)i haven't ridden in a few days... time off for b-day lazyness :face-devil-grin: ??? does anybody have any info on the stadium path ??? has the rain FUBAR'd it again?

The decades-long neglect of pedestrian safety in the design and use of American streets is exacting a heavy toll on our lives. In the last decade, from 2000 through 2009, more than 47,700 pedestrians were killed in the United States, the equivalent of a jumbo jet full of passengers crashing roughly every month. On top of that, more than 688,000 pedestrians were injured over the decade, a number equivalent to a pedestrian being struck by a car or truck every 7 minutes.

"We’ve made progress in every area of traffic safety due to our willingness to take new, creative approaches to longstanding challenges with safety redesigns and through aggressive traffic enforcement. We’ve focused on making our streets safer for all who use them – no matter how they decide travel – and it’s another reason New Yorkers are living longer and another reason our city is safer than ever before."
The reduction in traffic deaths as a result of our safety engineering means nearly 300 New Yorkers are alive today who would not have been if we had simply sustained the fatality rate of five years ago," said Commissioner Sadik-Khan.
