Long time Tucsonan. Wondering where/when we lost our sense of direction as a city and community. Retired only because most businesses in the area seem…
Fourteen years after it's initial publication, this story is STILL right on the mark, Tom.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving, but while on the way to or from wherever your holiday is celebrated, PULL YOUR HEAD OUT and pay attention to the roadway and everyone else using it.
Thanks for the story and all the commentary.
I'll stick with having my brew at home, where I can watch what I want, don't have to deal with a rude staff OR rude customers. And most importantly, I won't have to deal with traveling to downtown and paying for parking or parking tickets.
I like using the older PROVEN system from the Territorial days. You know, the system used back before computers, high tech tweeting, and tour buses. Play against your neighbors, those who come out on top THEN get to play the better teams from the rest of the state.
Alternatively, just dump out the Valley area schools, and let the state of Arizona have it's own champions. Maybe schedule a final round of teams from Arizona vs those in the great state of Maricopa.
Why didn't you interview Mark Spear for this story? There you'd have a VERY informed person with a lot of background in traffic signal scams and enforcement.
Photoradarscam: That "pathetic" jaywalking candidate is Steve K.
Read the original story: "Lay off the jaywalkers," Kozachik said after hearing the idea at a forum last week. "I do it every morning when I'm out running. You'll end up balancing the budget on my morning run."
Ben Buehler-Garcia wants TPD to ticket the jaywalkers. Kozachik needs to get a ticket whenever HE jaywalks. Or maybe use one of the City parks for his jogging pleasure.
What you won't hear in the media reports: Wed night 10/9/13, TPD received a call from BP about a driver weaving and running into curbs along Speedway west of I-10. While waiting for TPD to respond, the BP unit managed to stop the vehicle before anyone was injured or further property damage could occur. TPD took the driver into custody.
Where were all the protestors when THIS incident happened?
Aw, c'mon. Don't "rain" on Dan's charade.
