The magic stoplight at the State Capitol
0 comment Thursday, October 9, 2014 |
Tonight after work, I pedaled east up 16th Avenue and turned south on Sherman Street, headed towards the State Capitol building. I usually cut through the capitol parking lot on the west side of the building and end up at the stoplight at 14th and Sherman. Tonight, I ripped around the corner and banked through the pylons onto Sherman, not even slowing down. It occurred to me that I almost always, like 80 percent of the time, get a green light at that intersection. (Unlike the light at Lincoln and 12th, which I think I hit about 2 percent of the time.)
