Re: “WTF: What Do Cyclists' Hand Signals Mean?

Great article; just an addition that Burlington did adopt safe passing of 4 ft.

Re: “Resident Petitions to Put North Avenue Lane Change on Ballot


There have been over 300 crashes on North Ave in the last 5 years (19 of them have been pedestrian or bike crashes), more than any other Minor Arterial in the city. The road reconfiguration would decrease sideswipe and rear end collisions by reducing the number of potential conflict points. It will make the road much safer. People regularly speed more than 10 mph over the speed limit.

Re: “Ello, Goodbye? Some Startups Leave Vermont for More Populated Pastures

Responding to the following quote: "Others mentioned the high cost of living as an obstacle, but Pollak pointed out that entrepreneurs often migrate to even more expensive cities." The issue is that in Vermont, pay is not proportional to the cost of living. While the cost of living in other cities may be higher, potential pay is higher. I took a huge pay cut to work in Vermont. It's a tradeoff that I'm not frankly completely sold on. Also, tech talent is very difficult to find in Vermont.

Re: “Bikers to City: Make Streets Safer

Here here for safer streets for bikes and protected bike lanes in Burlington! Bikes are good for business, the environment and our health. Please act SOON so that we don't lose out on momentum - there are many families like mine who want to live car-free but can't because the streets aren't safe for our kids. Many cars in Burlington break the law speeding and running lights at a higher rate than bicyclists do. More bikes on the street = safer streets!
