if you're gonna tether a bus to a powerline like that just fucking install a light rail at that point. Trolley buses are for retard city planners who are too afraid to add additional infrastructure

A lot of the trolleybus route that Muni operates are way too steep for a tram or light rail.

In theory, there is nothing wrong with the idea of an e-bike. In practice, it seems to consistently attract the worst type of person.

I mostly encounter boomers and zoomers. Boomers are alright for the most part. It's the zoomers that are the problem. Most are not able to handle the speed of an ebike responibly. I often see them blowing reds and stop signs and almost running over peds. Ebikers don't have to work for their speed, unlike normal bicycles where one has to work hard for a long time to achieve ebike speeds, picking up bike handling skills along the way.

Planning on taking a few pictures this weekend, but every time I head down to the airport I feel like I’m just taking a gamble on where the planes will be. There’s a nice parking lot right off the end of one of the runways but I don’t know how to tell if it’s going to be getting any traffic at any given time.

Any tips?
>>
>>1685191
Wind coming from the south, planes will be taking off and landing on 19R & L. Good views of 19R landings from the Lowes parking lot at ridge and maple, the strip mall along Kellogg there with the kohl's and Burlington has good landing views of 19L. Takeoffs on 1R & L can also be seen here. There's a park on S. Tyler that can see some takeoff views of 19L, but I'm not too familiar with good viewing areas of the south end if the airport.

I am one for advancement of the industry to meet demands of commercial enterprises, to create jobs for riders and others that like the idea and want to get involved, but some of these newer Work Bikes are ridiculous to see on the road. Newer Pilot Programs are failing everywhere with oversized trashy designs that are barely novelties that wont function in place of normal vehicles. They definitely could use more class like pic related

>Trucks pay state and federal diesel fuel taxes. The federal taxes go toward maintaining federal roads (US Highways and Interstates). They also pay taxes on tires, which other vehicles do not pay.
As I said, not in the destination state. By your own posts they are as much a so-called leech on the roads they use in the destination state as anyone else not paying gas taxes.
> That's a legal issue unrelated to this
Idk, you brought up license and registration fees which are minimal anyways but I'm pointing out how people dodge them, sounds relevant to me.
>Separate legal issue
Again, sounds relevant to me. Tolls pay the roads, people dodging the tolls means less money for the roads.
>Separate issue
Separate but still related man. You brought up paying the roads, you can't ignore the factor of truck damage which is costly to repair.
>>

>As I said, not in the destination state.
Varies by circumstance and location

>Idk, you brought up license and registration fees which are minimal anyways but I'm pointing out how people dodge them
And again, that's an unrelated legal issue

>Tolls pay the roads, people dodging the tolls means less money for the roads.
Toll evasion is a separate legal issue

>You brought up paying the roads, you can't ignore the factor of truck damage which is costly to repair.
Correct, which is why they pay diesel excise taxes and taxes on tires, which private cars do not pay
