DC considers ‘right on red’ ban for cyclist safety

A change could be coming to D.C. streets including the possibility drivers can no longer turn right on red. This would happen if legislation proposed by Councilmember Mary Cheh is approved as-is. The Safer Streets Amendment Act of 2022 comes after three cyclists died in the city last month. We talk about the bill with Jeremiah Lowery of the Washington Area Bicylists Association. We also zoom out with Virginia Tech Professor of Urban Affairs and Planning Ralph Buehler to talk about urban planning and what the future hold for DC city planning.
