Future's so bright...

So the brilliant, forward thinking minds at city hall have another road widening project in the works. Bayers Rd this time. Sensible chaps. A quick look at the satellite view of Bayers Rd on Google Maps shows an avenue in the midst of a sea of green.

So the brilliant, forward thinking minds at city hall have another road widening project in the works. Bayers Rd this time. Sensible chaps. A quick look at the satellite view of Bayers Rd on Google Maps shows an avenue in the midst of a sea of green. Trees! Parks! Lawns! What a waste of space. I say, let's cut down every tree on the peninsula, and pave over every green space. Think of the number of parking spaces that would be created just by paving Victoria Park. And without those useless trees lining every avenue, streets could be widened even in residential neighborhoods. Traffic congestion would vanish.

And while we're thinking forward, lets get rid of mass transit entirely. Once we clear the way for cars to move unimpeded, we won't need mass transit. Vile method of transport anyway. Think of the funds that could be diverted to street maintenance. We'd never have to dodge another pothole. The pedestrian problem would be alleviated as well. After all, why would anyone walk anywhere once driving becomes so effortless and convenient?

Ahhh... I smell Utopia...
