Do you have a plan to vote?

Let us tell you the information you need to register and cast a ballot in D.C.

For all the District’s talk of dangerous pedestrian corridors—-and it’s commendable, absolutely—- we’re doing pretty well here.  I suspect that this has much less to do with road maps than overall drivers’ attitudes: They know people and vehicles share the road. We look for each other, wave in acknowledgment, and gesture to suggest “No, no, you wait—-I’m gonna keep walking now.”

It works.  They apparently have a different way of going about things in Florida, though. Behold, below, a ranking of the worse cities for pedestrians. It’s part of a report, out yesterday, put together by Transportation for America.

D.C.’s below the jump.
