Here the Baltimore Sun reports on statements (radical statements to be sure) made by our US Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood. LaHood says in part that motor vehicles will not be given the overwhelming edge in federal transportation policy they've held these last 60 years.
Why, cyclists and walkers are part of the transport picture too!
All kidding aside, this is revolutionary stuff, incendiary stuff. We'll see if it's all just talk. I'm keeping my fingers crossed meanwhile.
