don't block the box!

stop signs and stop lines...
there is one law that could have a massive ripple effect to improve the safety on city and residential streets
that is complete stops at stop sign at stop lines
NO CALIFORNIA ROLL! THIS AIN'T NO SUSHI THIS IS DRIVING!

cars would have to go slower approaching the stop sign
they would achieve a lower speed between stop signs
there may be the chance that pedestrians would get that RIGHT OF WAY that has been promised to them

it is simple...

the driving style in the DC area is so uncivilized
the cars roll through stop signs and red lights
the cars do not yeild for pedestrians
the cars have no issue with blocking the box or even blocking the full intersection
the cars are as obnoxious to other cars as they are to pedestrian and cyclists
there is no method to their madness
they need to rethink their trajectory

portland has installed bike boxes.... words in wired
while in the LA TIMES the author brings up some ideas on Critical Mass
