    hand a darwin award to that moron surfing the train.  the best that could have happened was if he fell.  oh wait, then his parents would have sued the city and probably won!


  • Larry Littlefield

    “Staten Island Councilmen Vincent Ignizio and James Oddo recently asked the State Department of Transportation to widen the West Shore Expressway by adding miles of new high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes.”

    Based on the Staten Island Expressway, is it fair to assume that these would become general traffic lanes in short order?

    The Staten Island Expressway is so jammed, making it easier for more people to get there in motor vehicles isn’t going to solve anything.  That money could be (or could have been if recent development makes this impossible) hooking Richmond Avenue right into 440 to the Bayonne Bridge.

  • Speaking of HOV lanes, could NYSDOT throw us a bone and at least include an HOV/Bus lane on the new Tappan-Zee?

  • Iris W.

    I believe Oddo’s desire to widen the West Shore Expressway is a good one, so long as he follows Norman Steisel’s policy advice and first runs the plan by Community Boards, the Borough Boards (and Borough Presidents), the City Council, Department of City Planning and Planning Commission, Police, Fire/EMS, Sanitation, Educations, Health and Hospitals, Parks, Economic Development, Landmarks, the Art Commission, the Boy Scouts of America, MADD, Homeland Security, the Motion Picture Association of America, the AFL-CIO, the NFL, and NBA commissioner Daniel Stern.
