Hilla Shamia makes incredible furniture by casting aluminum around molds filled with wood, burning the wood and filling up its negative spaces.

Rolling Stops for Cyclists make sense

It looks like Utah is going to pass a rolling stop law for cyclists, which is really sensible imo. I’m a stickler for cyclist following traffic rules (folks who blow stop signs perpetuate the road rage against cyclists), but coming too a full stop doesn’t always make sense for a cyclist that has a clear line of sight both ways. In practice, virtually no one will fully stop if there’s clearly no traffic coming and laws like this allow for that while maintaining that failing to yield to cross traffic is illegal. Most importantly, this has already been on the books in Idaho for 20 years and they have an excellent cyclist safety record.
