Better late then never, Tuesday the 21st of September there was a forum on transportation hosted by the New York State Transportation Equity Alliance (NYSTEA) which was held at the Albany library main branch. The night started off well because it was catered with food from the Co-op which I don’t have to tell you was delicious. After we sat down, bellies full of good food, the first speaker up was Leah Golby who gave the introduction and laid down a general theme for the night. You may remember Ms. Golby for her support in getting the common council to support the Madison Ave. traffic calming project which passed Monday Sept. 20th unanimously 15-0. After she spoke various people from organizations such as We Act for Environmental Justice, the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, Empire State Future, and a few others got up and gave their respective presentations about how there organizations are working to improve the transportation problem for not only Albany, but all of New York as well.
All in all it was a good night. Speaking for myself, I enjoyed the entire event because it brought to light many issues that are facing New York as a whole and put everything in prospective. We are definatly living in intresting times.

We have a slight bug with calendar events right now. If you click on “Upcoming Events”, the items on the calendar are correct.
However, if you are not logged into some Google service (including Gmail, Google Calendar, etc), then when you click on individual event items in the list to the right, the time zone will be in GMT, not eastern time.
If you’re not logged into Gmail, please view the calendar directly for the appropriate event times.
Your local friendly web team is currently digging through Google APIs to fix this issue. This post will be deleted when the bug is fixed. Thanks.
UPDATE: This has been fixed.

On August 13, 2010, Governor David Paterson signed into law a mandate that drivers pass cyclists at a safe distance when traveling on New York’s roads. Although the law does not set a specific distance, the text of the law states that three (3) feet is considered a safe distance and that sometimes an even greater passing distance is necessitated by road conditions.
A really bad morning in the Capital Region for one cyclist.
