There was a state trooper on the Longfellow again this morning- pulling over speeders. I asked the Statie how fast I was going (downhill) and he just laughed and said "not fast enough. Maybe they've figured out that this is a big revenue source, which would be awesome, because speeding is so rampant on the bridge.
The Livable Streets mailing list that I participate in had a discussion of it last time they were ticketing, and one of the members co-workers got a ticket and was told that they were cracking down "because of the bike share" I told Nicole Freedman about it, and she said that it was a surprise to her, and she hadn't asked for enforcement, but thought it was great that they were doing it. I'm a little concerned that people will "blame" bikes for getting a ticket, instead of their lead feet, so I wish that the troopers just said "it's because of safety"
In any case, I hope to see this trooper regularly in the next couple of months, and hope that cars begin to expect him too!
