Dear PoP – Bike Dangers at Thomas Circle

“Dear PoP,

In my mind, this is a pretty clear cut case of cars being dangerous, bikes being vulnerable, and infrastructure failing to mediate the situation, but the first comment on YouTube was a bike hater saying I should ride on the sidewalk. I’m hoping this video will draw attention to the danger at this intersection, but am also curious how your readers will respond.”

For folks who use the bike lanes – do you share these experiences? If so do you think they require barriers like 15th St, NW. Are there other barriers that can be put in place. Or is this just the reality?
