TPD stopped by its notorious feeding pond, 3rd and Treat, yesterday the 24th:

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.

The committee plans to write another letter...
