  • Riding a bike one handed, in the rain, holding an umbrella, while wearing a helmet. Seems legit.

  • This is why no one rides metro over the weekend. i live half a block from a metro but am contemplating just renting a car to go to NOVA tomorrow.

  • 20+ minute headways and curtailed routes on multiple lines turns 30 minute trips into 90 minute slogs. This type of service drives people away from metro in droves, spurring completely unnecessary traffic and expense.
