A reader reports:

“Just wanted to pass along a heads up that for the last two mornings, cops have been ticketing bikers heading westbound on M Street NW between 9th and 10th (the block next to the Convention Center). A portion of the block – between the corner of 9th and M and Blagden Alley – is one-way heading eastbound only, so they are ticking westbound bikers right by the Alley, coming down the street against traffic. They seem to only be ticketing bikers on the street, not on the sidewalk.”

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
