TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! REPORT: URBAN CORE TRAFFIC CHAOS THANKS TO MISGUIDED KANSAS CITY STOP LIGHT REPLACEMENT EFFORT!!!
Once again it seems as if Mayor Sly and the City Council have made a major miscalculation regarding the streets of Kansas City and the priorities of residents and voters.
To wit . . .
EARLY REACTION TO STOPLIGHT REPLACEMENT IN KANSAS CITY'S URBAN CORE HAS BEEN RESOUNDINGLY NEGATIVE!!!
We've talked to a few Kansas City Insiders and urban core denizens about this topic and the controversial program to replace stoplights with stop signs has met with overwhelmingly negative reaction.
Here are a few reactions . . .
"It's not a safety issue, it's a basic lack of resources being allocated to our community. They're cutting corners in the urban core. They could never get away with taking out stoplights in the Northland."
"Mayor James talked about remembering Montgall and the urban core. It looks like he has forgotten about his neighborhood and doesn't even want to give us stoplights while he helps developers build the Downtown streetcar"
And my favorite comment . . .
"With one single decision Mayor Sly James and The City Council have moved the urban core in this city backwards almost 75 years. We can't manage street lights? That's an unacceptable defeat for a city that's trying to lead the way toward new technology."
Even worse . . . We're getting reports of dangerous intersections that haven't grown accustomed to the change . . . And let's remember stop signs in this town are pretty much optional anyway when there aren't police around.
All things considered . . . This stop light move is seen as an affront to the urban core and another sign that Mayor Sly and company are out of touch with what happens on Kansas City streets.
DEVELOPING . . .
