Filmmaker Russell Houghton gives the drivers of LA empty streets and freeways. For most of us that is only dream rather than the daily nightmare that we are forced to endure 24/7. This fantasy can only compare to finding pots of gold at the end of rainbows and where galloping off on your unicorn means never having to say, “Sorry I’m late, the traffic was horrible!”

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!
