@transitstudent: you're right -- the blog post ought to have mentioned the police chases. I agree with you and Michelle that the police should not engage in high-speed chases without extremely good reasons to do so. I hope the investigations will shed some light and prevent further collisions of this nature.

I do not, however, think that it is inappropriate to reiterate the urban design factors that may have contributed to the collisions -- at least on Cannon. While I agree with you that they have been mentioned many times on this site, it is also true that no substantive change has yet occurred. And that's not entirely because of poor political organizing -- it's also because a lot of people don't yet agree that these streets are a problem.
