Another example of why those who cannot afford to support their own children, should not have them
There aren't enough police officers to catch all the incredibly stupid and dangerous drivers who try to beat the light. I have come to a stop while the light was still yellow only to have the car behind me go around me and through the intersection.
Because the action of these drivers are so dangerous, I support the use of the red light cameras.
I thought about this long and hard, did some driving and tried to figure out some method for going through an intersection safely and with zero chance of running a red light. The conclusion that I arrived at is that this is really hard to do.
Would it be helpful if the yellow light were replaced by a yellow countdown timer light. The extra information would make my decision easier, right? Wrong! I did a Google search and it turns out that this was tried many years ago, with the result that people would speed up trying to beat the light and misjudge the distance to the stop line resulting in more violations.
The fear of getting a ticket from a red-light camera is also something that would cause people to speed up with the result being more violations!
No wonder there are so many tickets and and there is so much money being made!
Love this article. I'm an avid motorcyclist (it is the main part of my identity as a human being), and am also a bicyclist - whenever I can't ride my motorcycle, I take my bicycle - and this is a fascinating look into a few strident bicyclists' lives. Very similar to a look into the lives of lifestyle-motorcyclists.
I'd have to say that Rochester's bicyclists, pedestrians, *and* motorcyclists are indeed treated as second-class citizens here. We need more accommodations and respect toward those 3 classes of commuters/people.
We've added the link, Monique. And here it is, too: https://getschooled.com/attendance-counts/…
Thanks for the suggestion!
These guys are a great! I've seen them plenty of times and every time is a blast.
It would be great if a link to the JHU study was provided.
I believe that the problems we are facing in terms of crime and police actions have been brewing for a very long time. We've had many public acts of police officers arresting innocent bystanders: Emily Good, Benny Warr, the Edison Tech Trio, etc. and murders being left unsolved.
When you talk to the working poor of this city they feel beat down by a system that sees them as the criminal first and nothing second. That is a huge problem that no one in authority has addressed adequately.
Interesting. I think I'll attend the presentation.
