    My wife saw the aftermath of a hit-and-run at Columbus/Broadway yesterday afternoon around 3:30. I can’t say I’m too surprised to see nothing in the news about it today.

  • Reading the article on income based fares makes me think that Rieskin should examine this across the board – and implement income based parking meter rates. That would be very interesting in various meetings where people with money try to exploit people without money when trying to prevent meter installation.

    “The working poor cannot afford to pay to park”

    “OK, fine, if you are poor, you park for free, otherwise you pay”

    Re: Rohnert Park Driver Sentenced to 10 Years
    Great to finally see the hammer of justice brought down on people who maim cyclists, especially when they’re reckless and then also run. This might be the first time I’ve seen the punishment actually be what I would call adequate.
