A typical European car is parked 92% of the time. It spends 1/5th of its driving time looking for parking. Its 5 seats only move 1.5 people. 86% of its fuel never reaches the wheels, & most of the energy that does, moves the car, not people.
I’m sure North American, Australasian, vehicles are similar.
Never forget, a 13-year study of a dozen cities found that protected bike-lanes led to a drastic decline in fatalities for ALL ROAD USERS. And painted bike-lanes? No safety improvement at all. As for sharrows, it’s safer to NOT have them. Via #StreetsblogUSA, read their article. #bikelanes #bikes #cities #transportation #mobility #sharrows #infrastructure #urbanplanning
They say “We can’t do that. We’re not #Amsterdam.” You respond “Amsterdam wasn’t always like that either,” showing before & after transformations illustrating that the cities we admire made CHOICES.

I keep seeing lots of long-time #fediverse users saying 'don't favourite posts it does nothing' but actually when you favourite my posts it makes me smile and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
I won't post much at this time, as I'm preoccupied by the return of my American partner.
He's back in (Cape) town (heh) and we're tying up loose threads—sorting his belongings, emptying his apartment, etc. At the same time, we're grappling with the prospect of marriage, green cards, immigration …
I won't romanticize it. It's all draining, consuming stuff. Even the marriage, which would normally be a cause for merriment, has taken on a different cast in the light of his leaving.
On the one hand, Mastodon triggers 580+ HTTP requests every time I post anything (because my followers are distributed across 580+ servers)
But any time I visit a single web page in my browser it can trigger 30-100+ HTTP requests. So posting to Mastodon may end up equivalent to visiting 5 web pages?
Jury is still out for me on if the way Mastodon works is a significant problem in this respect
Security researcher David Schütz has won a $70,000 bug bounty after stumbling across what appears to have been an elementary way to unlock any Google Pixel phone without knowing the passcode.
Where does the #MastodonApp store downloaded images by default? I saved an image and I can't find it on my phone.
