Now write an article about the teams of guys with noisy leaf blowers who make it impossible for me to even hear my own thoughts seemingly every day as they blow things in my neighborhood. Also, people who have dogs alone in their apartments during the day, yeah, those things are barking all day.

"well-known actress Finola Hughes, who is expanding her repertoire to directing with this first feature for CFSSB." - did all the people your signing up vote for her to be the director? How is THAT a community movie, sounds more like wanting people to pay for the budget of the movie she's making. Give us your money and then come work for free, and then when it is over you're telling people to Buy the Dvd, they don't even get a copy of the dang movie? ha ha....

Forget that, want to donate to Hospice do it! Why would one want to have to open a Saks account so a measly 5% of it can go to them and Interest on the card can get racked up.

@Num1UofAn De La Vina (depending what section) is narrow and trying to accommodate moving cars, bikes, parked cars, and then pedestrians popping out from behind the parked cars at random to walk across the street. Crappy street specifications should not fall on driver's alone.

@EastBeach that would not be fair at all, because some drivers drive less miles than others, that would still be lumping all drivers into a lot and all bicyclist into a separate lot when all want the same basic rights to use the roads.

I am all for this, but there is a flip-side too and they should then do stings AGAINST pedestrians not following the laws because many make it impossible for vehicles to get anywhere at some of the crosswalks if a vehicle were to strictly follow the law. (ala do not drive thru until all pedestrians are completely out of the crosswalk) The flashing red light means do NOT enter the crosswalk and is a warning for those already in it - State Street especially, the crosswalk remains full and people needing to turn right are often stuck, or having to slam the gas at the last second - not to mention sometimes large groups blocking when you try to drive just straight across. On top of that many of them dash into the street at the last second not paying attention because they are on their cellphone and then as you wait for them to cross (er, finish their phone call), oh, they go the long way, exit the crosswalk and go at a diagonal in the middle of the street to get to the sidewalk instead of going corner to corner. And then the light goes red and you can sit through the same scenario in the next cycle or sit there until traffic dies.

As for De la Vina the pedestrians are not crossing at intersections, they just walk across wherever they want, same goes for most one-way sections of streets, is this jaywalking then? Would the driver be ticketed for their jaywalking? Or?

If a specific area is known to be too dangerous for people to cross then instead of ticketing drivers, wouldn't it make sense to A.) not let it be a crossing B.) put in a light if there is not one. (or C. of course don;t let people drive there ha ha) This leads to costs that are probably silly, but then that is reality and laws should also be enforced based on reality and reality is: if people are too dumb to cross a street or too dumb to not hit people crossing the street then regardless of the laws it's going to happen. Naturally every instance should be judged on a unique case by case basis, many laws do not regard facts and circumstance when created ala just being a blind blanket over a problem that is too wiggly to really stay under it and conform.

Some bicyclist impeded traffic, some do not, it is on a case by case basis that I am either annoyed by or not annoyed by cyclist on the streets. I have more problems with other car drivers generally not being able to follow the rules for street driving, most seem worried about only themselves and not what is going on around them. However, having to pay all kinds of fees to even be allowed to drive on the road as a car, it seems bikes should have to adhere to the same BS if they are going to use it, make'em pay for little bike licenses ect. ;)
