  • Hmm. Voters Turning Against Prop. 23 and Prop. 19. I suppose voters oppose any kind of smoking. Or it could just be the Times, who seems to be intent on sinking those props.

    Good for Damien raising the issue in yesterday’s post, IMO the fact that “stoned driving” is being seen as the key issue that will destroy Prop. 19 simply demonstrates how the act of driving a 3,000 lb car is given way too much importance in our society. Bike improvements, transit improvements, and traffic calming all have a role to play in blunting (pun intended) the effects of intoxicated driving.

  • lols @ Drew – perhaps we should criminalize 1000++pound vehicles, and legalize intoxicants!! (my drug of choice is caffeine, though.)

  • Thanks Joe, I’ll be here all week. And to your point, my feeling is that autos and (currently) illicit substances should be approached the same way: legal, but heavily regulated to counteract their unhealthy effects to society.
