TPD stopped by its notorious feeding pond, 3rd and Treat, yesterday the 24th:
E 3RD ST & N TREAT AV 09-24 Thu 09:28 AM Bicycle traffic E152670244 E 3RD ST & N TREAT AV 09-24 Thu 09:18 AM Bicycle traffic E152670230 E 3RD ST & N TREAT AV 09-24 Thu 09:10 AM Bicycle traffic E152670223
The rolling log at Neighborhood Support Network indicates that TPD hasn't been there for a while. Perhaps with end-of-month coming up, one morning, TPD motor officers decided it was time to help their stats a bit, for 30 minutes or so. One would think that if the intersection is such a death trap and opportunity for TPD to educate, TPD would be there every day and night, like 24/7. They aren't.
Tucson/Pima Bicycle Advisory Committee seems to be okay with this cynical, exploitive and wasteful behavior by TPD. It doesn't "...have a beef with TPD..." but does with COT DOT Engineering. Oh, and also, the media published a draft letter from TPBAC regarding the situation. There's that too, which also upsets them to no end. All aflutter, the committee is. Unofficially.
