The Dangerous Roads

All of us who bike Toronto know our roads are dangerous – and it’s because of cars. Drivers going too fast (on some streets, 40 kmh is way too fast for the neighbourhood), not thinking of others, taking unneccessary chances to save a few seconds.

Cyclists are always aware of being almost killed all the time because a driver speeds right by them with inches to spare, all in an effort to save 2 seconds driving to work.

Drivers can do this because they are the bullies of the public roads. In a conflict with a pedestrian or cyclist, they always win.

The recent increase in pedestrian fatalities is all over the news, with reports that pedestrians are now being hit in signalled, lighted crosswalks. I saw this on the news this morning, but of course the “hosts” of a show like Breakfast Television encouraged pedestrians to be careful… not just drivers.

What the hell?

If someone can’t cross the street at a lighted, signalled crosswalk, WITHOUT fearing for their life, there is something VERY wrong with this city. ESPECIALLY when the “news outlets” (fearmongers) admonish pedestrians for thinking that they, taxpayers, may have a right to use the PUBLIC space that our PUBLIC streets are.

Tomorrow’s Weekly Carnage post is going to be huge. It’s depressing.
