In The News: Fight!, DM, and SUV's

Portland, OR - after many months of reading and hearing from various sources about all the wonderful things about Portland I finally found something that shows that they are human after all...

"Angry drivers call ‘bike safety’ an oxymoron - ‘Bad apples’ whip up tension on both sides of the windshield"

They even use the term scofflaws.


Des Moines, IA - Des Moines is getting into the bikes/busses act.

"The nearly $50,000 program will equip 80 buses with racks for two bikes each."

Cool! I wonder what my city spent to equip 30(?) busses with the same. Oh, and 16,000 passengers ride daily in Des Moines, 200 ride daily here.


All Over, USA -

Explorer, Expedition and Lincoln Navigator - minus 50%
Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe - minus 50%
GMC Yukon - minus 46%
Cadillac Escalade - minus 23%
Escalade ESV - minus 40%
Hummer H2 - minus 32%

Oh, and Ford made the finaly Excursion last Friday.

I read it here first.
