Internet News Stories

Many roads are narrower than those in the North — where streets have wider shoulders to accommodate winter snow — and people who want to bike or jog find themselves uncomfortably close to traffic. (See pictures of the perfect steak.) "

I guess since I am reading this article I would also like to see pictures of the perfect steak?!
