    Quite an interesting pile of articles, but, the same themes over and over.

    Re: ‘Santa Monica has its worst congestion’, the author notes that traffic is getting worse, new development is coming that will make it even worse, and that the Expo Line won’t help. She’s right on all three counts. I wonder what she’d think about the only solution that’s ever been proven to make traffic better: road tolls for drivers. Santa Monica could pull it off, too, since there aren’t that many ways into town.

    Re: ‘Bike Wars’: I wonder how these articles would play out if it would be possible to talk about the health of bike commuters vs the health of car commuters at the same time as talking about the detrimental effects of bike lanes on car traffic.

    Oh, sweet. Housing is even more unaffordable near transit in LA, too. Break out the champagne, liveable streets advocates!
