“Yeah, no shit people are getting killed.”
Bike Snob, in his own way, makes the case for a “broken windows” approach to traffic enforcement.
I’d love to see a mayor with the balls and/or vulva to admit that if you cracked down on all the assholes with expired inspections, no insurance, suspended licenses, out of state registration to save money when they actually live in New York, and so forth, you’d take a shitload of dangerous drivers off the road. Three tickets for no inspection? Tow that shit! “Oh, boo hoo, it’s hard having a car in New York City.” No shit, asshole. It should be hard, and if you can’t hack it then don’t drive. You’re asking a lot of the city and its residents to accommodate your car. You should be creeping around town at 20mph with your valid paperwork on hand at all times, petrified at the idea of making contact with anything.
His whole post is brilliant. He’s arguably the city’s best advocate for safer streets.
