Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Its been a while since I've seen him out there.... but yup, he was doing great business for a long time! I can only assume he has found a better fishing hole, but I have gotten into the habit of looking along the fence line before I approach the stop sign just in case....

Either the lights should be bagged, or they should be programmed to display a walk signal all of the time. There is no justification for displaying a stop signal for pedestrians and it is wrong to do so. In principle I’d love to hear an expert explanation for why what they’ve done is reasonable, but I’m quite confident there isn’t one.

One thing I’ll be interested to see is whether they use that as the construction entrance. If construction starts with excavation at that end of the property, they could get a construction entrance running through there very quickly. If that happens, then the lights would become reasonable at that point.

Definitely.

You could also just, you know....stop at the stop sign.

That is true as a workaround but it doesn’t mean the stop sign should be there or that the police behaviour is reasonable.

Wonderful day of cycling in London, on their amazing Thames Valley Parkway!

   

   

   

   

I don't think this is the word they're looking for:

And sometimes I do.... [if I am being honest, most times I likely roll thru].  I know its the law, and if I got a ticket, I'd pay it.  Doesn't mean I have to agree with it.
