Yesterday, I mentioned that the Fresno Bee is littered with stories every day about pedestrians being killed, motorists dieing, people shooting cyclists, and so on and so forth. I posted a screen capture indicating the toll that autoviolence takes on the region.
I just wanted to make it clear that I didn’t cherry pick a list of headlines. It really is something we see day in and day out.
It really is a pattern. And it’s time that it changed. City government and the local police need to take a look at the violence and maybe start connecting the line between the number of unnecessary deaths and the way the roads continue to be designed.
