A Primer On San José’s New Bike Lanes

New green bike-protected lanes are starting to appear all over San José in late 2018. Unfortunately, many motorists are having difficulties figuring out where to park their cars, often leading to unnecessary traffic jams and accidents.

Since the current signs and meters in San José are close to the bike-protected lanes, some drivers mistakenly assume they can park in these lanes. Cars are actually supposed to park next to the bike-protected lane’s buffer area to create a strong barrier between the flow of traffic and cyclists.

City leaders say they understand drivers’ frustration and won’t penalize anyone for making mistakes…

Are E-Scooters Eco-Friendly? Indiana University Investigates

One of the key selling points for shareable electric scooters is that they are a more eco-friendly way of getting around compared with buses and cars. Recent research out of Indiana University (IU), however, suggests e-scooters might not be as eco-conscious as some companies claim.

Scientists at IU examined numerous e-scooters around campus and compared them with other modes of transportation. According to their analysis, researchers say e-scooters leave a significant carbon footprint.

The main reason e-scooters have this negative environmental impact has to do with the way they are charged. Investigators note that most of the e-scooters on IU’s…
