@ed I do agree that there is a lot of silly behavior around the tracks (and in general) from University area cyclists, but not all crashes on the trolley tracks are the cyclists' fault. I crashed nearly 4 years ago trying to maneuver around a huge diesel pickup truck double parked outside the angle parked cars. I was new to Tucson then, but aware of track danger having come from San Francisco, but I just got a little too close. And, unfortunately, my front tire fell into one of those perfectly-sized gaps that grabbed my front tire and threw me over the bars. I had a bruise on my forehead for 12 days from my helmet (probably be a vegetable if I wasn't wearing it) Nearly four years later, I still suffer from regular neck pain that would be unbearable if I didn't get regular acupuncture from my awesome husband. Despite my experience with the tracks, I still support a streetcar, but I find it disturbing that the city won't implement available safety measures in track design that are available considering the well-documented problem of crashes on the tracks. And I find it despicable that a cyclist, on a cycling blog, would make a blanket accusation implying that cyclists who crash on the tracks get what they deserve for acting stupid.
