As I turned onto Channing from St. Francis at 6:45 this evening, and noticed no moving cars in either direction as far as I could see, I silently sent a big THANK YOU to the citizens and officials who brought Calming to Channing. Before Channing was Calmed, I used to see a few cars on it every so often. Now, I am more likely to see a sleeping dog.
But, our job isn't quite done! There are still a few intersections which don't have stop signs. Let's get out there and campaign to remedy this really dangerous situation. Forget all that talk of the poor condition of many of our streets; what is really important is that we spend our scarce resources to Continue Calming dangerous raceways such as Channing.
