Prioritizing drivers merely fails everyone else

If our city or any other continually cites favorable traffic accident statistics pertaining to cars ALONE as proof that streets are “safer,” this of course is a selective citation that purposefully omits any attempt at measuring safety on the part of walkers, cyclists, wheelchair users and anyone else not cocooned in a car.

If this or any other City Hall ever went for a walk or a bike ride, officials might finally understand. They won’t, and so they don’t. Rinse, repeat, and pay a contractor for another “traffic” study that misses the point of having a city in the first place.

Come join me, pols. Let’s have a nice walk. Bring a flask; you’ll need some liquid courage.
