City Letter of the Day

I don’t know if this counts as a Slog tip, but I was so amazed and appalled by what I saw this morning when I drove to work: around 7:50am I was stopped at a red light on the south side of the University Bridge at the infamously dangerous intersection of Eastlake Ave E and Fuhrman Ave E when a female bicyclist came barreling by me on my right (the bike lane) and proceeded to run the red light.
I just couldn’t believe it and, I can’t be sure about this, but from her speed it would not have surprised me at all if she had just come down the hill without stopping at the light at Harvard and Eastlake.
A bicyclist died at that intersection last month and this dumb fuck just positioned herself to become #2. Anyway, she was in her early 20’s wearing brown knickers, a black short sleeve shirt with a dark red long sleeved shirt underneath it and, thank god, a helmet. I passed her again as she was traveling north on the Burke Gilman Trail.
