The City of Boise Cycling Safety Task Force, 2009, composed mostly of law enforcement officials:

…Moreover, the Task Force largely agrees that bicycles, by nature of their mass, speed, maneuverability and lack of protection for the rider, are sufficiently different from automobiles to deserve separate treatment under the law.

May not amount to much.

One possible interpretation of this story:

A system that is already proving to be ‘safe’ despite a barrage of pre-launch propaganda needed more bad press.

The security breach was discovered and corrected “at the end of May” and affected 1,174 customers who signed up for $95 annual memberships to the program, said Seth Solomonow, a spokesman for the city Department of Transportation, which launched Citi Bike and controls all of the system’s communications to the public.

He did not explain the delay between the identification of the security flaw and notification of affected users.

According to NYC Bike Share LLC, a local subsidiary of system operator Alta Bicycle Share, an “error log” containing personal data on Citi Bike account holders was “briefly accessible” on the system’s website on April 15. The error was corrected as soon as it was discovered, NYC Bike Share President Michael Jones said in the letter.

WTI catches back up to Brent

West Texas Intermediate crude became more expensive than Brent for the first time in almost three years as pipeline and rail shipments helped clear a bottleneck that reduced the price of the U.S. benchmark.

WTI hadn’t been higher than Brent since Aug. 17, 2010. The move was in intraday trading. WTI averaged $17.47 less than Brent in 2012 and traded as much as $23.44 lower than its European counterpart Feb. 8.

Improved pipeline networks and the use of rail links are helping to ease the North American oil glut created by rising production of crude from shale formations. WTI has jumped 18 percent this year, while Brent has decreased 2.5 percent as North Sea supplies stabilized after maintenance.
