Rahm to Ban Cars
Here's a dumb idea, four years in the making and (no doubt) costing countless millions:
- The city of Chicago is preparing to unveil an ambitious plan to eliminate fatal accidents on the city’s streets.
Chicago Transportation Commissioner Rebekah Scheinfeld says the Emanuel Administration is about to outline it’s Vision Zero action plan, which is part of a global movement intended to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious-injury accidents.
Chicago signed on to the effort in 2012, and the plan is finally drawn up.
Eliminate fatalities? And serious injury accidents? This sounds similar what Rahm and lib-tards are trying to do with guns - ban the guns and murders will miraculously cease. How's that working out lately?
- “It’s just the start,” Scheinfeld said. “Following the release of the plan, we’re going to do community engagement especially in areas where we’re seeing the greatest concentration of traffic crashes — and you see a lot of that on the South side and the West side. There’s a disproportionate impact on areas of greatest hardships.”
Gee, the South and West sides again. Is there no affliction that can't be traced to these neighborhoods? How about you try this?
- take and pass Driver's Ed
- get a license
- buy and insure a car
- maintain said car
- obey the law
- don't be an asshole
That would cut down on injuries and fatalities overnight.
