    I understand this is one of your things…but these weekly carnage posts are my least like section of this blog… I guess I could just shut my mouth and pass over it, like I usually do, but for some reason I wanted to speak up today. I find the rest of streetsblog very optimistic….looking for a solution to the traffic issues of the city.

    We all know that there are tons of car crashes daily…

    Anyone ever entertain the idea that the world would be safer WITHOUT car safety features that protect the driver?

  • Todd,

    I hear you. I hate this Streetsblog feature too. But we’re going to keep doing it. Here’s why.

  • ddartley

    “The solution: Driving less.”

    Yes sir. But maybe it’s also time for the federal and State governments to undo that multi-dimensional disaster of the 1990s that was the removal of the 55mph highway speed limit.
