New Virginia Toll Lanes Designed to Create Congestion

July 8, 2008 by · Comments Off on New Virginia Toll Lanes Designed to Create Congestion 

Illegal political contributions helped an Australian firm land a lucrative toll road deal that grants the company unprecedented power over Northern Virginia’s transportation future. Last week, Transurban wrote and asked state lawmakers to return checks that the Melbourne-based toll road operator had written in violation of federal campaign laws. But the deal these contributions helped bring about has already been finalized.

In June, the US Department of Transportation created a first-of-its-kind $1.6 billion financing package that consisted of tax-free bonds, loans and state taxpayer grants to support the project that will add a pair of High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes to the Interstate 495 Capital Beltway just outside of Washington, DC. To this amount, Transurban only added $349 million of its own capital — less than the cost of interest — toward the construction of the toll lane.

Helmets Enforcement for Moped Drivers

July 8, 2008 by · Comments Off on Helmets Enforcement for Moped Drivers 

Waynesboro City Council also addressed the possibility of enforcing that helmets be worn by all moped riders throughout the city. This after a deadly moped crash happened over the weekend.

Police say the rider was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash on the corner of North Delphine Avenue and Sixth Street.

Councilmember Nancy Dowdy says this fatality proves that city council must take action by moving forward on an ordinance, “I’m afraid that as the fuel crisis gets worse, more people are going to be riding them, and brain injury is a very real result of moped accidents, or scooters, or whatever you want to call them.”

Ride the World’s Best Motorcycle Roads

July 8, 2008 by · 2 Comments 

The world’s fastest roads may be arrow-straight stretches of pavement where any lead foot can haul ass, but motorcyclists know the world’s best roads have curves, and lots of them.

It helps if the roads have great scenery and no cops, and smooth pavement is always a plus. Ideally, the curves go on for miles and miles, but even a short stretch of twisties can be exhilarating…

Check out these great stretches of roads from around the country and add your favorite.

Mary Peters Offers Motorcycle Community an Apology:

A Motorcycle Riders Foundation representative attended a July 1 meeting with United States Department of Transportation Secretary Mary Peters, in her office, to discuss among other issues, the 2010 funds.

Earlier this year, Peters sent proposed legislation to Capitol Hill that would allow the 2010 funds to be used by states to promote helmet use (not law). This is in addition to the other two areas where the funds are already allotted now; rider education and motorist awareness programs. Also in attendance at the meeting were representatives from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and the Motorcycle Industry Council.
