Friday Poll Day

Friday Poll Day: “American Voices” on the Bicycling Anti-Harassment Ordinance

Earlier this week, The Onion took its swipe at the Bicyling Anti-Harassment Ordinance, passed by the City Council last week and signed into law by Antonio Villaraigosa earlier this week.  In their long-running "American Voices" series, a group of fake people make snide comments about the law showing the confusion and bufoonery that one would expect from America's Finest News Source.

I responded by challenging Streetsblog readers to come up with their own "American Voices" response, a tongue-in-cheek exercise to have a little laugh at our own expense.  As I expected, you all rocked at coming up with one-liners that would fit right in with The Onion's goofy mockery.  As promised, the one that the most readers vote as the best will earn someone a Streetsblog T-Shirt.
