Anyways, walked home from Lechmere and was reminded with how little urgency any safety related fixes are made.

(I've already been hit t-boned once on a bike in Cambridge, driver didn't even get cited, figure eventually once of the cars will kill me, so might as well give it up)

@CambMA@twitter.com @cambikelanes@twitter.com @StreetsBoston@twitter.com @cambbikesafety@twitter.com Might be a bit moody because a driver told me to "get off the fucking road that is for cars" after biking on Columbia and...didn't feel like biking again, or really ever in this city tbh.

@CambMA@twitter.com @cambikelanes@twitter.com @StreetsBoston@twitter.com @cambbikesafety@twitter.com Oh wait... building anything around here would inconvenience the city funded tow lot...can't disturb the automotive use parts of the city, that might upset our climate change mitigation strategy of closing our eyes and hoping for the best.

This sign on Gore St. really sums up @CambMA@twitter.com 's approach to street safety. Probably would take three years of community meetings and two deaths to fix in fear of causing delays to out of town drivers...

One of the daftest things I’ve done in a while. It all started when someone said about their antenna tuner β€œit would tune a bowl of custard if you asked it to” - so I decided to try. It actually received signals from Greece on FT8

I'm a resident who doesn't own a car. Yes, we exist.

One thing I love about not having a car is that I don't have to deal with where to put it.

One thing I don't love is the lack of dedicated bus lanes. I'm eager for them to become common. Rt if you agree.

Europe making advances toward requiring speed governors in cars to limit top speeds. If approved (uncertain) it could have a big impact on traffic fatalities. forbes.com/sites/carltonreid/2

This piece at SFMOMA Chinese art since 1989 exhibit is such a great urbanist statement. Building a wall to cross the street.

RT @jay4ma@twitter.com: Don't think a vote for Charlie Baker is a vote for Trump, Cruz and other right-wing candidates?

See how Charlie Baker funneled donations to the Massachusetts Victory Committee to national GOP candidates.
