Hurray for Bulb-Outs


It seems like every time someone wants to criticize the city, they mention bulb-outs. Since when is making pedestrians safer a bad thing? I actually see cars stopping to let people cross the street when they step onto a bulb out where no car would stop before. Seems like a big improvement to me! Perhaps if these complainers got out of their cars and tried walking somewhere they would see how inhospitable drivers can sometimes be and see that bulb-outs really do work to make Santa Barbara a nicer place to live. Streets are for everyone, not just cars.
