AAA Mid-Atlantic? "Reckless cyclists and thoughtless pedestrians"? This sounds like 1920s pro-motoring propaganda.

I really hope this doesn't turn into a bike crackdown like NYC is currently experiencing and that enforcement is actually equal among all street user groups.Has the police department mentioned if they will step up speed enforcement of motorists?
