Erdman parked there in December to attend a Ravens game at Memorial Stadium, only to return and find her rear passenger window smashed in a halfhearted, unsuccessful attempt to steal her compact disc player.

The State Highway Administration will more than double the number of parking spots at the Davidsonville Park and Ride lot, a move officials say is a response to increased demand. Plans call for adding 240 spaces to the 210 now there. Construction, likely to start next summer, is expected to be completed next fall, said SHA spokesman David Buck. Some days the free lot — on Route 424 off U.S. 50 — is so full that drivers who don't find a space leave vehicles lined up along the lot's inner curbs and grassy islands.

SECOND AND 10.That's what traffic engineers face Aug. 24 when they get another chance to please Ravens fans migrating to the big birds' nest at Camden Yards for the team's National Football League exhibition game against the Eagles.What happened before the Aug. 8 exhibition opener can only be described as caged madness as gridlock touched air, land and water.Let's go to the videotape: A perilous traffic jam clogged the air as news helicopters and fixed-wing airplanes towing advertising banners flew 400 to 1,000 feet above the 185-foot-high top deck of the yet-to-be-named stadium; long, slow-moving lines jammed water taxi stands; and in the now-infamous light rail debacle, the little transit system that couldn't stranded thousands of riders before and after the game.

However, customers hardly use the bus service, said Tom Corcoran, manager of the parking lot."The people who have been parking [in this area] for years still walk," Corcoran said.

The State Highway Administration has announced plans to reconfigure traffic patterns between the park-and-ride lot at the eastern terminus of Interstate 70 and the Beltway to slow vehicles and deter illegal street racing. The decision to rework that section of I-70, where low traffic volume at night often attracts racers and spectators, comes on the heels of a crash June 21 in which two people were killed and two critically injured after a vehicle that had apparently been racing went out of control and left the road.

Of the eight possible sites for a new and larger park-and-ride at Interstate 95 and Route 152 in Joppa, state transportation officials' favorite is the least popular with residents. The preferred site is a nearly 10-acre wooded parcel just north of the interstate. "That is 10 acres of pristine woods that is our buffer from 95," said Vince Rabenau of Joppa during an informational meeting last week at the Joppa-Magnolia Fire Hall. The property, owned by Trinity Baptist Church, provides "a sanctuary from the noise, pollution and traffic," he said.

Low-fare bus company Megabus.com yesterday called off a Tuesday news conference after jumping the gun in announcing daily service to New York from the state-owned White Marsh Park and Ride. The Maryland Transit Administration said Megabus has not secured official permission to pick up and drop off passengers at its lot off Route 43. "Typically we don't allow commercial operators that are competing with people like Greyhound to use our lots," MTA spokeswoman Jawauna Greene said yesterday.

I ASKED last week for some unwritten rules to live and drive by as we cruise Maryland's highways and byways. I received quite a few, but my favorite is Andy Weaver's "two-second rule." "When the rear of the car in front of you passes an identifiable spot along the road, count the seconds until the front of your car passes the same spot. An interval of two seconds provides the necessary reaction time for you to stop should the car in front stop unexpectedly," he explained. He noted that this rule works regardless of your speed.

More than 100 trees were planted at the Fallston park-and-ride lot on Route 152 yesterday as part of a Boy Scout service project co-sponsored by the State Highway Administration. The project was implemented with the aid of the SHA's Partnership Planting Program, which helps community members beautify land near highways. Ranjit Korah, a 16-year-old member of Boy Scout Troop 313, organized the service project as part of his work toward achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Korah said the troop planted dogwoods, swamp white oaks, red maples and serviceberries, which will line the perimeter of the lot. Such projects are the aim of the Partnership Planting Program, according to SHA landscape operations division representative Leroy Jonas.
