Lots of good stuff this week on Streetsblog, NYC’s analogue of GGW and an inspiration for creating this site.

Doctors support congestion pricing: A group of doctors and public health professionals have a new blog advocating for congestion pricing in New York City. Pollution and vehicle crashes make their jobs harder; congestion pricing would help.

Whiny drivers on Broadway: Here’s how to properly write that “war” article: drivers are upset about NYC DOT’s new pedestrian areas on Broadway, but it’s working great for businesses as well as the millions of people who walk down Broadway.

School buses of tomorrow: Marshall Ramsey has a humorous take on high gas prices’ effect on schoolchildren.
