“You’ve got all the kids.”

July 9, 2012

Via the Tribeca Tribune:

“West Thames is a very dangerous road at 8 in the morning and between 2 and 4 p.m. because you’ve got all the kids,” CB1 Battery Park City Committee member Tammy Meltzer said. “My concern is that there are cars that U-turn there. It’s a very wide location and there are no crosswalks.”

Is there a quote that better represents the way people talk about dangerous driving as if it’s some weather-like uncontrollable force?  West Thames is probably a very dangerous road because you’ve got all the cars, not because you’ve got all the kids.  And it definitely won’t become more dangerous when you have all the bike share.

    Do you think these people ever read their quotes in the paper and think, “wow, I sound like a total moron?” Sadly, I suppose not.
