Texting bitches and raging assholes

Posted on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 12:04 PM

I stood on the corner of Spring Garden and Barrington yesterday for 20 minutes waiting for a bus. Do you know what I saw? I saw a dozen dangerous crimes a minute: drivers "squeezing" the light or just plain ignoring it, drivers bullying pedestrians out of the crosswalk in a very lopsided game of "chicken," drivers stomping on their accelerators and peeling out of a stalled lane into another that offers an irresistible ten feet of Open Road, only to shudder to a squealing stop half a second later. Do you know the worst part? Enforcement is essentially nonexistent: when was the last time you saw, or heard of, a driver being ticketed for not yielding the right-of-way to a pedestrian? Or for reckless driving after forcing a cyclist off the road? It just doesn’t happen. —Slow the Hell Down
