Ya because cars kill so many people everyday, we just except it as the way it is. Ridiculous in my opinion.
Wow! good thing I take Muni and bike in the city. I feel bad for those poor saps that have to drive. sucks!
Electrify Caltrain, and trains will be able to accelerate faster, provide more reliable service, and be ready for high-speed rail.
I'm from the city (the Parkside to be specific) and now I live in Connecticut and work in public transportation here. And you'd probably be surprised how much they are talking about California's high speed rail project. You're probably wondering why they are talking about it right? Well they're laughing at Californians for wanting to kill high speed rail in the state. The Connecticut government is waiting for Californians to kill the project so that they can get ahold of that high speed rail money. In every state meeting I attend, I constantly hear about how can the Californians be so stupid to give up the money that will create a lot of construction jobs and the economic benefit that will come of people having these jobs. Californians are a HUGE joke in this regard to the people on the East Coast. The east is going to get the economic benefits of high speed rail and California will be the joke of the country and lose even more economic. It's this backwards thinking in our State that keeps me from moving back. The rest of the true economic centers in the country like the east coast are moving forward and Californians are falling even further behind and don't even know it. We have job out here in the east if my fellow Californians are looking, because our once great state isn't going to get you anywhere.
@Sfclubber: Yellow zones aren't just installed because the city feels like it. Someone on your block asked for that and got it. Be mad at your neighbor.
@mikesonn: Mike is right.
big box stores never employ as many people as a collection of small stores. Wages are often lower too. Big box stores also put more people out of work because they carry everything due to their size and small places can't compete. There are a lot of studies backing my claims. Please look it up. Take care.
