Here's what I've been reading, watching, and listening to:
Robotaxis score a huge victory in California with approval to operate 24/7.
Two studies show Chicago not meeting the need of residents re: cycling infrastructure. Though I’m extremely comfortable biking throughout Chicago, I agree that we’ve got a lot of work to do to make people not used to riding feel safer. I ask my children to ride on the sidewalks and have asked them to never ride on busy streets like Ashland, Western, and Irving Park.
With that said, I have been extremely frustrated with the People for Bike’s report that came out several weeks ago. It had Chicago near the bottom of the list of large cities – behind Milwaukee, Detroit, and even San Antonio. Sure, Jan. Grab a bike and ride in any of those cities compared to Chicago. Not even close.
