Every now and then you come across an article or a news item that you say to yourself “what were they thinking” and then you check your calendar to see if it is April 1.
Such was my reaction when I read the article in the paper City drives pace car program.
Using volunteers to calm traffic and ensure that drivers are obeying the posted speed limits, and rules of the road is to invite road rage, verbal and or physical assaults.
Who is going to assume the liability when someone gets injured acting as a vigilante? You have to wonder who comes up with these ideas to calm traffic by installing speed bumps, narrowing streets (which are already too narrow), and now having untrained well-meaning people to act as “pace cars”.
It seems to me that our traffic demand people should concentrate on moving traffic in a timely and efficient manner.
