Kansas City Toxic Driving Culture Exposed?!?
With respect to CoCo Austin and her iconic curves along with her love for sustainable transit . . .
Yesterday we had a pretty good discussion about the adventures of 4th District Councilman Eric Bunch and his controversial fight with a motorist.
Some of you d-bags had so much "fun" that it inspired the council dude to pout via Twitter to his fellow hipsters inside his bubble. Not a big deal, dude seems to be going through some "issues" if he's fighting with strangers on local roads.
More importantly . . .
The topic earned low rent coverage via public radio.
Some solutions that were advocated . . .
- Make Streets 25mph - Host Steve Kraske Loved That Idea!!!
- Make pedestrians and cyclists the priority for creating new streets so that we can share conversations and glances with strangers.
- More cash for high-tech crosswalks.
These are all interesting ideas but the only trouble is that there's no debate or challenge to the faulty premise that all drivers are angry and they "dehumanize pedestrians and personify cars." To be fair, one of the panelists noted that stereotyping all drivers was unfair but his comment was quickly dismissed.
You decide . . .
