Exactly. Here on the North Shore we can spend millions of taxpayer dollars on high-friction road surface treatments to “help drivers brake” but proposing a 30km/h limit on residential streets needs “public input”, what essentially amounts to a driver referendum.

Black kids driving ATVs on city streets are illegal and a danger but cars designed to go 150-200 mph are LEGAL and celebrated by our society. I’ve been reflecting on this over the last week...

Facebook reminded me of a “memory” from 10 years ago. My car typically stays parked on the street for 7-15 days since DC is so multimodal. That really angered someone. I spellchecked and rehung his note inside the car (of course it was a dude!) is something else.

A nice counterpoint to the e-bike ad that was recently pulled from French TV for supposedly “discredit[ing] the automobile sector [...] while creating a climate of anxiety.” That’s the power - and hypocrisy - of the car lobby.

Once again... Why is it fine for cars to park on the sidewalk but I can't just go lay out in the middle of the street whenever I want?
