You are a master of changing your position.
I do not change my position unless I am presented with facts contrary to my position. As you have never presented me with such facts, I have never changed my position in a discussion in which you were involved.
After you failed to make the case that lowering the speed limit does not lower your average speed,
I both succeeded, and did not make such a claim.
your position now is that your point is only true on some streets.
My position never changed.
It is true on the vast majority of streets.
B. Did not claim to the contrary.
I have already replied to your incessant requests for proof so I will not get into that again.
Yes, you have incessantly not provided any proof for any of your assertions.
And yes the goal by the city is to reduce speeds all over not only in some places.
Yes. THEY STATE SUCH OUTRIGHT.
They think by doing that fewer will drive.
Such is a worthy goal. And they are succeeding if you actually look at auto usage.
They won't without improved mass transit when people have to stand in crowded vehicles at all times of the day or night with service that may not be frequent enough.
That is why we need to improve service! (And why we are, and why people are switching to transit!)
You want the new average speed? I can only tell you what it is for me because my car keeps track of that every time I start my vehicle.
Wow! You are actually providing numbers which are conceivably real!!!!! IT IS AMAZING!!!!
It is between 7 and 12 mph hour when I am not on the highway. When I combine highway and city driving, it is between 19 and 27 mph. Do you think that is too fast?
The means are not relevant here. The extremes are!
Imagine how much lower it would be if I never exceeded the speed limit.
Oops. You just made it clear that the answer is yes to the above question.
