Are Bulbouts for Tourists?

Those people that are wanking about the bulbouts don’t understand about the “normal” progression of events in the city. First they’ll put the bulbouts in, and then replace them with round-a-bouts. Of course, they probably paid some firm megabucks to do a study on their benefits and never considered asking us if we want them, or if there even is a problem that needs addressing. They will probably say that it is desirable or necessary for the tourists, even though we will be the ones stuck with them year-around.—Gary Lapman
