Got a #20isPlenty sign from @BikeWalkBus - I hope my awesome Councilwomen @sandovalcd1 @OrtegaAtLarge @KniechAtLarge will support lowering the speed limit from 20 to 25 on Denver residential streets to keep us safer! Learn more and how to participate at… Image
Research shows 20 mph “measures are effective in reducing accidents and injuries, traffic speed and volume, as well as improving perceptions of safety in two of the studies. There was also evidence that such interventions are potentially cost-effective.”… Image
Meant lowering from 25 to 20 mph. Wish this thing had a edit button. But you all knew what I meant. 😂

Biking is so much more relaxing and safe when the speed limit is 20mph for drivers in school zones and drivers aren’t going any faster than bikes. Not so relaxing when the bike lane is blocked by parked construction vehicles and drivers are aggro. #20isplenty
@DenPublicWorks is this bike lane at 29th and Zuni permitted to be blocked? Is no signage for a closed bike lane the best practice? Sent in a 311 requests weeks ago and never heard back. Thanks so much for any info.
Also per @ReidyChiureidy and @ramsayhuntley is this construction site at 29th and Federal permitted to close the lane? Would be really easy to close one car lane + put in cones at both of these sites for a small bike lane detour since there are 3 lanes here w/ the turn lanes.

Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).

Kicking off #WalkBikePlaces with an infrastructure tour on @BlueBikesNOLA. Several under way now; I'm on the one that looks at public art, placemaking. #bikeNOLA
First stop: Jackson Square, National Historic Site, named for Andrew J. Led battle that saved NOLA in 1812 but owned enslaved people. Should his statue come down? #WalkBikePlaces
Beautiful murals! Families of Plessy and Ferguson reconciled with art in celebration. Studio BE right across the street--big studio space in covered warehouse. @BlueBikesNOLA station right here at park.

Pilot in BC Canada: @velometro 3-wheeled enclosed #ebikes operating as shared vehicles. Think Car2Go+bike. Geofenced to keep off pedestrian walkways. #TRBAM
If @velometro classified as bikes they can be in bike lanes but you couldn't park these at a bike rack. Lots of policy issues to be worked through. #TRBAM #bikeshare (?)
Traffic operations questions created by low-power vehicles that aren't quite bikes. If they operate (maybe in general motor vehicle lanes) + you want smaller vehicles used for urban delivery + working for bike mode shift, what happens? #TRBAM #LEVs
