This town's priorities are completely effed. They know the problems, they know the safety issues when it comes to cyclists/pedestrians, and they know the un-sustainability of all of this mess. Yet they continually go against what's best for turning these things around & let the special interests keep having their way. Or maybe they're just stupid & have zero idea on how to run a modern city? Regardless, thats basically how it goes here it would seem & this is just business as usual for Jax & the good ol boy network.
Sure, I could post solutions, we could have discussions, this & that. But would that really matter? I'm convinced that anything that has to do with alternate modes of transportation here (basically anything besides getting into your own lovely automobile) is done so half-assed that it will discourage such thinking. Buses (with hour long wait times at stops with horrible conditions) that takes you an additional hour to go only a few miles, an insanely expensive monorail (that can never be extended because of that) built overtop a city with an extremely small population density that doesn't go anywhere, bike lanes put out in the middle of nowhere unconnected to anything, yet nothing in the core where it's really needed.
Does anyone else see this, or am I just wearing my tin foil hat again?
