The city's tweeting traffic engineer explains how small changes to streets are adding up to big improvements

The first thing you might consider after looking at the Twitter feed of Seattle's chief traffic engineer Dongho Chang is that he may possibly be two, or three, or even four people.

And he does it all, for the most part, on a bicycle.
