I Was Wrong - It's Death Race 2000 In San Francisco
Here's the toll so far:
- 14 known injuries
- 7 victims in critical condition
- 1 fatality
Enough is goddamned enough! Ban cars in the city not just in downtown. Any cager that gets within a foot of you...stick your camera phone in their face and take the photo to the police! If that doesn't do the trick, jump on their hood and smash it into f*cking scrap metal!
And no, Lew, it's not you. When I left the city and moved here (Merced), we were a quiet little city. Now it's nuts too; just on a smaller scale.
So, for that matter is Ceres where this guy has an address. It's about 35 miles north of here.
The guy who was killed was in Fremont. Should all driving be banned in Fremont? Or everywhere that cars hits people?
Of course, if driving could be banned anywhere, SF would be a good place. It's pretty compact and has a decent public transportation system.
I am so angry over this that it's making me stupid. When I left my flat to meet the Frogette for dinner, I practically boiled over. First, not one block from home, I practically dared an asshole in a Mustang to run me over. He tried to force a left turn onto a one-way through an intersection with 5 or 6 pedestrians in it. I stood with one foot on his bumper until he hit his horn, then mouthed "Go f*ck yourself!" and flipped him off before crossing.
Later while crossing Filmore Street, when a white BMW SUV blocked the crosswalk at a red, instead of going around I went up to the passenger side and smacked it, hard enough to scare the sh*t out of somebody's wife not hard enough to dent his pretty side panel. I'm lucky the guy didn't get out and beat me senseless with a tire iron.
I feel like I'm under seige. I want to confront every goddamned cager in the street. I want to kick in side panels and scream at every cell-phone wielding moron behind the wheel of a car.
I want some goddamned justice! I want to take away your f*cking cars and melt them down into musical instruments. I want some revenge.
Oops, sorry. Kind of flew off there for a minute. Maybe it's the meds I'm taking.
LOL, no meds taken here. Zip Zero
Italy is notorious for its bad drivers so this is a bad example, but your point about banning cars from downtown or the city itself is worthwhile. Rome does this in the central city - only official vehicles and taxis are permitted in. The area is still extremely congested and pedestrians are everywhere, but imagine how much worse it would be if everyone could drive into town?
