Better than morning coffee

Dar Ward has a nice preview of the Victoria Policy Institute's “Transportation Cost and Benefit Analysis: Techniques, Estimates, and Implications.” It has inspired me to perhaps actually read the document, although I must admit I prefer watching videos of cyclists during Copenhagen's rush hour as inspiration. Alas, watching videos alone will not get us from here to there.

The Green Wave in Copenhagen from Colville Andersen on Vimeo.

(If you watch the video, here are my three comments: Notice how few stops signs and red lights the cyclist has to stop for. Notice that there is room to pass in the cycling lane. And how no one rides their bicycle on the sidewalk -- a better deal all around for peds and cyclists.)
