Michael Geoghegan with Northwest Strategy and Planning, had a great experience with him.
I completely agree with this idea, but it is not the city council or Lisa Herbold that will be the impediment; it will be the loud anti- anything (walking, bikes, transit) West Seattle car lobby.June 18, 2020 at 9:02 am in reply to: Is it okay to pluck flowers from someone’s yard without asking? #981103
Definitely not ok. Glad I’m home more these days to catch people picking the flowers in my yard and not picking up dog poop. Confrontation and some good public shaming goes a long way.June 15, 2020 at 7:08 am in reply to: File Suit for All Property and Business Owners in West Seattle north #980850
I see half a dozen cars per light cycle drive on the low bridge every time I go though the Chelan intersection.
Good equipment doesn’t make up for a lack in rider ability/experience. Powerful brakes on a bike that requires no effort to go fast can be a hazard of its own.
The sidewalk is still open on the corner of the auto body shop. Bikes and peds can slip around the corner there and still utilize 36th for now.
Care to elaborate, or just stick with the grade school level Trumpian response?
This has to be one of the most NIMBY posts I have seen in a while. People on here complain when the City doesn’t allow them (property owners) to do what they want with their property or, in this case, when property owners do what building codes LEGALLY allow them to do.
It also belongs in Rants and Raves, don’t foul the Open Discussion section with this.
If you are going to rant, at least be factually correct. It’s King County, not the City of Seattle, that collects sales tax on real estate transactions. And your friend did not pay $48,000 in sales taxes on a $750,000 sale. He paid up to the maximum rate allowed under state law of 1.78%. so a max of $13,350. Either you are full of it or he is.
If your going to lay blame, at least do it correctly.
Thanks for the support/feedback Ponderosa. I did not get the Lyft drivers plate number, my focus was on the person in the cross walk. I wore my helmet camera this morning and will post a video of an illegal pass in a new post here shortly.
Scott I do have one, but put it on the shelf for the winter and replaced it with an extra light. Guess I need to start wearing it again.
WSB, will you allow me to post every video I can get of drivers threatening the lives of cyclists and pedestrians?
Lots of ignorance on here. RV antifreeze relies on proplyene glycol for its de-icing and antifreezing properties, and is commonly used in POTABLE water sytems in RVs. Propylene glycol is only toxic in very high quantities, non-carcinogenic, and breaks down quickly to relatively benign conpounds in soil and groundwater (mostly commonly to lactic, formic, acetic, and oxalic acids).
Its also the primary ingredient in the windshield washer fluid that eveyone has been spraying over the last week, and what every plane at SecTac is coated with when temps drop.
It’s not what I would choose to use as a sidewalk de-icer, but it would certainly work.
Courtesy is a two way street. I’ll consider not LEAGALY passing you on the right when I go a single day where I do not observe a driver texting, putting on making, reading or other wise driving distracted.
Think it rude and unnecessary all you want, but we are legally allowed to do it, and it makes my commute faster and more efficient than yours.
For your first question, yes, look at the Bicycle Master Plan.
For you second question, yes:
“The driver of a vehicle May overtake and pass another vehicle upon the right only under conditions permitting such movement in safety. Such movement shall not be made by driving off the roadway”.
The penalty is significantly more than that:
More importantly, it’s a scumbag thing to do. Be an adult and pay your fair share. It is dirt cheap to own a car in WA compared to other states that I have lived in, people here have no idea how good we have it.
You are required to register your vehicle within 30 days. Not doing so is licensing fraud, which can be reported here:
I’ve found placing a note conveying the above information on the windshield of vehicles to be a very effective way of convincing people to register their vehicles in WA.

Glad to hear that you are considering this option.
I agree with Eddie that using the crosswalk at Spokane St/East Marginal to head north is the right choice.
My preferred route once coming off the Elliot Bay trail on King street is to hang a left of Alaska Way, right on Yesler, left on James, left to 2nd Ave bike lane.
If you let folks on hear know what time you plan on riding, I’m sure someone would offer to ride with you on their way. You could also reach out to West Seattle Bike Connections to get in touch with folks who would offer to do the route with you.October 9, 2018 at 6:21 am in reply to: I am totally oposed to Kavanaugh on the Supreme court but…… #930279September 21, 2018 at 6:15 am in reply to: I am totally oposed to Kavanaugh on the Supreme court but…… #928820
