“Williams [before she was hit and killed on the sidewalk] would walk the spine of busy Hwy 141 to get to jobs at Burger King and Bob Evans to help support her mother, 4-year-old brother and other relatives, while also attending high school.” https://t.co/ps3Lt8c2yp

These two photos, run with recent stories about pedestrian fatalities in the US, are just heartbreaking. The Manual on Traffic Control Devices (#MUTCD) that regulates road design standards all over the US, sanctions these hellscapes. Time for radical change. h/t @NEXTSTL https://t.co/l5ipMlcrpC

BREAKING: On a vote of 81 to 64, anti-voter Senate Bill 7 has passed the Texas House. In one of the hardest states to vote in in the country, we should have spent this session expanding the right to vote, not restricting it. #txlege

"For a Dutch person, the bicycle is not a subject for discussion. It is an everyday tool, like a vacuum cleaner, a toothbrush or a knife. We don't talk at parties about how convenient, or even pleasant, it is to cut a vegetable with a knife." - @LCyclable https://t.co/Mu9efl1lC8 https://t.co/IlFhbtC9Sl

#HB4447 penalizes cities, counties, developers, their consultants, & property owners by adding more limitations to an already dysfunctional, one-size-fits-all, mandatory timeframe for approvals adopted last session. Authors have ignored numerous suggested changes. #txlege

Cities want great economic development & work closely with the development community. Rigid timeframes don't accommodate complex developments w/ public/private partnerships, public improvement financing assistance & federal & state approvals often involved. #txlege #HB4447

.@moodyforelpaso, #HB4447 is extremely damaging for local cities in Texas and must not be sent to the floor for a vote. Check with your local El Paso Planning Director & Mayor @oscarleeser to discuss its damaging effects to cities & great development. #txlege @txplanning

When people think about recycling, they imagine turning trash into something else. But that's not what's happening with a lot of plastics. Recycling is a commodities market—it's about whether someone wants to buy that item or not. @cgbooker reports: https://t.co/Hgc0pjapg5

Vancouver’s best public place isn’t a single place — it’s a linear public experience along the water, connecting parks, playgrounds & other offerings, for riding, strolling, people-watching & enjoying a sunny Saturday. Vancouver’s continuous Seawall around the downtown peninsula. https://t.co/d7aKAtK5LI
