Woman killed in school bus accident

Bad pedestrian death to a mom.
Woman killed in school bus accident: "Police said the victim had just taken her 18-month-old child to a day-care center near the scene of the accident. Officers said she was walking across Shady Avenue when the bus, turning left from Monitor onto Shady, struck her.

Other pedestrians yelled for the bus driver to stop, and once they caught her attention, she backed up and struck to victim again, police said.
So sad.

I just came back from a special event on Grant Street where a temporary park was made within two parking spots next to the City-County Building. Luke Ravenstahl and Patrick Dowd must have parked elsewhere today.

While there, I got to meet the new bike czar. He was quick to point out to me that he is not a 'czar.' Boy I was glad to hear that from him. I ranted about how Pittsburgh does not need any czars, again. Pat Ford was a czar. Czars often fall from power and have space inserted between head and torso.

The bike coordinator is also with duties for pedestrians and is part of planning.

As a city, we've got a lot to do.
