White LEDs are actually Blue LEDs with a yellow phosphorous coating; that's why the LED looks yellow when the light is off.

Yeah, they should keep talking about accommodation, after all they've been talking about this since at least 1990, when the American's with Disabilities Act was passed. Why shouldn't yet another gener more »

EZ Ticket, you just have to like it. But, I'm sure that would up the cost to an even 8k per cruiser. After all the marketing folks will need to design and print new stickers to put on the equipment; n more »

Of course the boylston St plaza is only used a handful of times each year and has barely been repaired, let alone renovated, in 30 or so years; the Pru Center knows that if they leave it alone and don more »

The photo caption at the top of the article is wrong: the type of bicycle that the riders have is the "safety bicycle" (two wheels of roughly equal size, cranks and pedals drove the rear wheel)which w more »

If they can wait a few years before moving the horses, the redone/renovated North Washington St bridge will have solid paved driving/cycling/walking surfaces. Having the horses traverse the bridge dur more »

Its the City's Pole Yard that's moving as a result of the MOA between the city, the MBTA and the CPCAY. The DCR property on American Legion Highway is quite large, and if planned wisely, large enoug more »

The Authors state a series of mis-truths: The plan doesn't ban all left turns, just at two intersections - from the Arborway at Washington St/Hyde Park Ave and at from the Arborway at South St/Washing more »

NativeBos, FYI, with the Casey Overpass coming down next winter (2014/15) there is already considerable mixed-use transit oriented development being proposed along Washington St just North of what is more »

I hate to be the one to break the news to you; but Sullivan Square, and the area around it, was made for cars. And not for anything else, not pedestrians or cyclists despite it being a major Orange L more »

Perhaps someone should contact the Engineers in charge of the project. They should be listed on the job site construction sign.

Would it be possible to put a toll on this road for non-commercial vehicles? Open tolling should make it relatively easy to do. It should help keep some traffic off it and the funds could possibly g more »

Another reason to be out both before sunrise and just before sunset is that many animals come out from where they have been resting at both sunrise and sunset. Stay very still, be very quite and you more »

The joint movement is far more complex than that, they move up/down, left/right as well as back and forth - just look at the jumble of joints in the picture. The road also needs to be able to be snow more »

Take a look at the bike accident reconstruction video that's part of the Globe report - bike accidents with cars and trucks don't occur in the areas between intersections, they occurr primarily at int more »

Ever drive over the Longfellow, or on Beacon St in Sommerville(Hampshire St in Cambidge)? Bikes constitute around 30% of the total traffic on those streets during peak commute hours. While cycling is more »

Cyclists ride on sidewaks because the roads are unsafe, by providing god bike infrastructure sidewalk cycling can be reduced.

Those pesky pedestrians, demanding to have a safe wy to cross a busy street. Let's up the sped limi on neighborhood streets while we're at it.

If conjestion charges are really to be considered then they should be timed to reflect actual conjestion - very low during the early morning hours, medium during the day, high during morning and eveni more »

Chacarao has a new location in the Prudential Mall food court. It's just as good as the Arch Street location!

It's time for the City to really start installing more bike parking and bike racks just aren't enough. While the City is starting to get it, with the new on-street corrals that fit inside a single pa more »

I don't know how many restaurants that would be taking this as seriously as Clover is doing. Not only do the make a fine sandwich (popovers, great coffee, and the awesome mid afternoon snacks) but th more »

Chrissie78, Since most on-street parking in the residential neighborhoods of Boston is free, let's meter those spaces. Boston could make a fortune. Probably not, people in cars want accomodations as more »
