OK, so it’s obvious that Carbon Trace is now a weather blog.
That’s the scene from my office window — the intersection of National and Grand (passable only by cars and able-bodied people willing to jump snow mounds).
I miss my bicycle.
In other news…
HB33, the so-called safe-passing law, has been moved to the House Transportation Committee. Please contact committee members and oppose this misguided legislation. I fully understand and appreciate why MoBikeFed is endorsing it. MoBikeFed works hard for all of us and does great work. But they are wrong on this one. Please read my commentary about it.
The chairman of the transportation committee is Charlie Denison of the 135th district — a large chunk of the southern part of Springfield.
Please: If you value your safety on the road, call or write your legislators. Tell them you don’t want Missouri drivers betting your life on their ability to estimate 3 feet. (Just take a look at the right sides of — the body damage on! — some of the cars driving around this town. Too many people have no idea where the sides of their own cars are.)
