Wanted: Videos of the Good, Bad & Ugly of DC Roads
Have you been biking or walking in DC and seen behavior that makes you cringe? Maybe it’s a driver running a red light or a delivery vehicle parked in a bike lane. Maybe you have seen great things as you traveled, like families with young kids using protected bike lanes, or delivery vehicles stationed outside of bike lanes with cones. Or maybe you’ve captured video of people navigating bad infrastruture—trying to cross a busy street, trying to merge out of a disappearing bike lane. If you have seen anything like this, we want your help! Here’s what we are looking for:
