Monday night was a great night. I am passionate about traffic. I had the pleasure of moderating a panel of some of the movers and shakers of Los Angeles’ transportation. About what? LA traffic of course and what the heck we are gonna do about getting it to move faster? A full house and then some, a wonderfully curious and engaging audience. Did you …

I’m not sure who is worse, the perpetrator or the witness that refuses to act like a good citizen. We know why the creep that did the crime isn’t turning himself in…he/she doesn’t want to get in trouble. But why won’t witnesses step forward? Does this mean they are a cowards, or perhaps they think their time/life is more valuable than another? Is it the inconvenience? Afraid? Don’t have the time? Don’t like getting involved? Is it because they think it’s none of their business? Oh contraire mon frère/cheri. This is not just a cyclists issue. It’s not just a pedestrian issue.It’s not just a car-on-car issue.
This is a people issue and affects all of us. Pull together peeps, let’s do this!
