What About Trucks?
'Streetsblog' shows off corner snow-bergs as traffic calming measures without even mentioning trucks or buses...
Remember how advocates against widening roads used to say that the extra capacity was only needed at intersections?
This is yet another example of how the class of people likeliest to fund transportation subversive endeavors as 'Streetsblog' are hopelessly out of touch with what happens far away from the lower 2/3rds of Manhattan's Central Park, with zero appreciation of how the food that stocks their local markets arrives- by roads and cars.
They are so anti road and anti car that they even blow the opportunity for a Hudson River freight rail crossing with the configuration of the Tappan Zee Bridge.
So how could we expect the sort of ilk that fund "Streetsblog' to ever ask the perspective of say truckdrivers?
