      the cyclist that didn't stop also didn't endanger anyone.  If you watch some of the cars, they really try to intimidate the pedestrians into stopping.

        which is why there is such outrage over philly city council trying to pass some ridiculous cycling laws.

        we've been asking, pleading, begging and screaming for years for the police to start enforcing the laws for  cars.

    •  This stop sign is improperly (0+ / 0-)

      placed. This is a T-intersection and the stop sign is    against the bar of the T instead of against the stem,where it should be. The bar of the T has the right of way over the stem.I see there is a pedestrian crosswalk but there is no reason for cars in the bar of the T to stop if there are no pedestrians waiting to cross the street.
