  1. Yay! Another survey! Another meeting to discuss what we already know and come up with solutions that were thought up years ago!
    Where’s the activism? Where’s the action? We seem to keep having meetings in Portland over the same things that always result in the same solutions, which are never implemented because the data gets “too old” or “we need another study for the purpose of having another study.”

  2. I think that the city/region/activists (credit who you want) have at least gotten drivers to notice pedestrians and bikes. I’ve seen a lot more people patiently waiting at stop signs or yielding to pedestrians lately.

    Maybe it’s only happening in NW Portland, but I’m impressed by the improved courtesy of many drivers in the area over the past year or two.
