Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

And where in my previous post did I claim that you don't drive?

And where did I oppose the 30 mph speed limit?

And where did I propose different speed limit signs on every block in Manhattan?

There you go again just making up things I never said.

What opposed was lowering the default speed limit from 30 to 25.

Of course someone could still be killed crossing Queens Blvd at intersections even with the fencing. So what? No solution is applicable in every single case. But the fencing did a tremendous amount of good. Pedestrians were also given longer crossing times so you no longer have to wait at an island for the signal to turn green again, because some fools used to try and outrun the cars and consequently were killed. God forbid a pedestrian shou,d wIt for two cycles to cross, but cars must wait for two or three cycles some times and that's fine and good because no one has any business driving. Still, I wasn't opposed to lengthening the walk signals. BUT LOWERING THE SPEED LIMIT THAT DRIVERS DO NOT ABIDE BY ANYWAY BECAUSE 25 mph ON QUEENS BLVD IS RIDICULOUS, did not in any way REDUCE the numbers of pedestrian deaths.

You make seem that NYC has an abundance of free parking which just is not true. It is rare that you can find a free space without looking. And meters are not cheap either. From $1.50 an hour to around $5 an hour. Off street parking is as high as $35 a half hour, $60 an hour, and $80 a day. And we still have traffic congestion.
