We can't afford ADA pads, but we have beg buttons encouraging pedestrians to only cross half way (light blinks after 10 seconds), then wait 3-5 minutes with 45mph traffic in each direction zooming by. I saw a guy do that here today and it was terrifying to watch.

‘Being a tad distracted is the very essence of walking. You walk around and notice people, sights, sounds, and get "distracted" by the world. I don't want to live in a world of "focused" pedestrians.’

Climate gradualism; NIMBY-created housing crises; unfunded pension mandates; attacks on health care and education; gutting of democracy to smash equitable taxation of accumulated wealth: This is what intergenerational warfare against the young by the wealthy old looks like.

"Cyclists are seen as a separate species, unconnected to the rest of the transport system. But every new cyclist is freeing space on the roads or on public transport for others who do not cycle. Everyone who cycles improves not just their own health, but everybody else’s"

Randal O'Toole used to swoop in to every town proposing a rail project w a newspaper editorial about how buses > rail, so the project sucked. Then once cities started doing bus rapid transit projects, he changed his whole tune and just said transit is always bad. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
