  • Brendan Kevenides

    Mark Brown’s piece in the Sun-Times has the terminology backwards. It should be “left cross” and “right hook.”

  • Chicagoan

    When an automobile hits a CTA train car, it’s always on the motorist, I don’t like how every news outlet makes it sound like the CTA operator could be at fault.

    From the time Brown Line trains go west of Western, cyclists, motorists, and pedestrians need to be prepared to interact with them, especially between Eastwood & Leland.
