It is so much fun to whine and complain about one way streets and safety for out children, who could dare to go against that? The fact it is utter nonsense and doesn't have any relevance to the actual accidents and fatalities that are happening in our city should not stop anyone from agreeing with the author. Why should the facts get in the way of a good story. That is what this article is a good story. A nice little piece of fiction.

People can be stupid and when they are bad things can and do happen. Sometimes to the person being stupid sometimes to somebody else. I find it very telling that the author tries to tug at our heart strings and get us to agree with him by using the "safety of our children" cause. Look at the list of fatalities above and the only child was a little girl killed in her parents driveway by her parents vehicle. How in the world is lowering speed limits or more enforcement stop this kind of accident? A casual look at the list shows the apposite the vast majority of the victims where in fact older people not children. As we age we slow down, our reflexes just are not as good as what the used to be. It happens, and sometimes it gets us killed. Sometimes as we age our minds just do not work as well as what they did when we were 20, 30 or 40 it happens and sometimes it gets us killed.

There are many things in this city that could be improved but putting effort into reducing speed limits and increasing enforcement just do not make any sense. Stop looking for fix to a problem that does not exist.
