Re: “Why isn’t this city more pedestrian-friendly?

Hing Frogg, maybe in your tiny black and white world it is impossible for hold two different points of view at the same time but some of us have actually become pretty good at it. For example, I love cars AND I love bicycles and sometimes I pick the bike over the car! If that hasn't completely blown your mind, I think Halifax drivers are amongst the worst I've ever seen AND I think that pedestrians are often at fault during a lot of collisions. And would you believe that I do most of my shopping downtown but sometimes I do go to Bayer's Lake? I am a big believer in buying local but once or twice a year I go to Costco.

At any rate, your ESP skills are a little off because I only drive beaters so that I can afford fun things like cool bikes.

Re: “Why isn’t this city more pedestrian-friendly?

As a big, bad car driver, I have to say that I completely disagree with the idea of reducing speed limits. I reject the assertion that streets should be made safer and in fact believe the opposite. Do you want to know what I'm doing when I'm in a dangerous situation? I'm trying to soak it all in with all my senses and pay close attention to my environment. When I perceive little or no risk, I get lazy and allow myself to get distracted. The roadway is always potentially lethal yet just today I (again) saw a woman emerge from behind a snowbank, face planted firmly in her phone not looking to see if perhaps a car might be blasting through the intersection. Putting round corners on every sharp edge is not a realistic way to solve this problem.

Re: “Nursing student told to cover up tattoos

I am a Registered Nurse with a full body suit. I am not from the generation he alludes to but agree that people with neck tattoos are scoundrels without much in the way of common sense. I have no idea why he ran to The Coast with this issue either since he "didn't want to make a fuss".
