The government keeps teasing us with the hope of congestion pricing or East River tolls; the majority want them. It would greatly improve my Downtown Brooklyn Neighborhood, as well as the rest of the city.
But our State government is too broken to let it happen, so I’m not going to get my hopes up this time.

RE: Would Plug-in Cars Fit on New York Streets?
Well, you wouldn’t need very many of them, because the “electric car future” is a fantasy inside the heads of NYT’s writers and green types who don’t understand that it isn’t scalable to anything like what we have now which was helped along by “free” oil just waiting for us to pull it out of the ground.
That story about the boy in Brooklyn is just horrendously awful.
And “no charges” against the driver. Sigh.
Even if no criminal charges were filed there’ll probably be a civil suit. Let’s hope this driver has plenty of insurance because this boy is going to need a lot of medical care.
Surely, not knowing if your foot is hitting the gas or the brake amounts to criminal negligence. If this had been a subway driver, you can be sure the MTA would be hauled into criminal court.
Bollard all the sidewalks. Pedestrians will be safer and motorists can gleefully smash-up their vehicles (and each other) anyway they like.
“What about that little "stunt" somebody pulled at Atlantic and Flatbush the other day? You know, the little "stunt" that actually killed someone? Why can't they post up three officers at that location to make sure THAT never happens again?”
