    FWIW, those Charter buses in front of that hotel on 8th have been doing this for years.

      I’ve found it to be less of a problem with the new green separated lanes. “Less”, not “no”.

    The Google/Yahoo/Youtube/Genentech/Dyncorp buses cut me off in front of Freewheel all the time. Seems like there should be a law against creating impromptu bus stops in a bike lane. Anybody have a law degree?

    Does the paint make the road super slippery?

    • friscolex says:

      Not at all that I’ve noticed. It’s not the same paint as they use to denote cross-walks and bus zones, which tends to be way smoother. I know there’s a StreetsBlog story about it somewhere if you want more info, but so far so good!

      Cheri: For the green bike lanes (and bike box on Scott Street), they use the same paint as curbs, which adds grit into the paint mixture to keep it grippy.

    Have to deal with these assholes every morning on my commute. Terribly annoying.

    That photo make it look like a cyclist was run over by the bus. Intended irony?

  6. [...] Of course, just four days ago we saw a federal official wedge a motor vehicle in there. And there are always plenty of charter buses clogging the lane. [...]

    most attorney general offices do have a consumer fraud section and consumer protection division. when we say pure water we mean, distilled, demineralized or deionized water. but first, what is ‘battery memory’? anyone with a rechargeable device may have noticed that the battery life seems to get shorter as the battery gets older. the reason that they are dangerous is because holding the phone to your hear obstructs your view.

    hence when not in use, i recommend to mute the sound or play music at the lowest possible volume. two hours of life just doesn’t cut it. generally speaking,one laptop battery could worked more than 1000 hours,especially good brand laptop battery,such as inspiron 1470 battery.then there are still so many people said there battery is fact,you are the’s you lead to your batteries works so short’s you,kill you dell laptop battery.if you really want to let your battery up to standards of’d better do like follows: if you are shifting to new house, then furniture removalists can prove very helpful in easing task of shifting your furniture and other goods. arguably the pick of these model is the galaxy s2 from samsung.
