And here’s the question I asked co-host Lillian Karabaic in Portland Afoot’s monthly commuting podcast: Should we change the law to make it easier to permanently take people with terrible driving records off the road?
Also on our docket:
- The City of Portland is experimenting with replacing more street auto parking spaces with café seating. So we asked the businesses on SW Ankeny Alley whether eliminating parking to create a pedestrian-only street has been good for sales.
- Should you or should you not participate in Portland’s annual Bicycle Commute Challenge this September? (Hint: participants receive free pizza and beer.)
And as usual we’ve got a low-car transportation tip of the month, Lily’s favorite online chatter about TriMet and my funny story from the bus. Plus: Lily Allen (no relation) offers an almost uncannily appropriate theme song for this month’s topics.
