Must Be a Blue Moon

leave a comment »

Or else as was commented in a DyingJournal community, the local police are on a “rampage” to boost their coffers for the new year. (*rolls eyes*) Whatever, seeing two drivers pulled over in a single day of commute (see this morning’s post) makes for a good day on the road. Here on Scarsdale, drivers are regularly close to double the speed limit, despite there being a police station right up at the end of this stretch. And sad to say, this one random little action here won’t stop it, because locals who travel this stretch every day know that the traffic laws around here are almost never enforced. I would be willing to be the fine on this driver’s own traffic ticket that by next week this time this same driver will once again be ignoring the traffic laws down this very stretch of road, and be able to do so with absolute impunity because he’ll just be going with the flow.

Other mild differences in this outbound commute: Two motorcycle police drove up 59 with their lights all going everywhere, then stopped just up past the fork near downtown to investigate something, it seems; and the traffic light at Beamer and Hall was not working.

Zen Vision M

Would I Be the One – Sean Lennon – Friendly Fire
[4:58] * *

*shrug* It won’t find its way to any of my Zen playlists, but it can stick around for the sake of the album as long as I don’t need the space.

abelian applause

applause for the policeman who pulled over a driver weaving dangerously at excessive speed through morning rush hour traffic on 610 west just south of 59

pity that this is the first time i’ve seen enforcement in th almost six months i’ve been commuting more regularly, although it’s not uncommon during a single inbound or outbound commute to see as many as a dozen drivers much worse than this driver was. pity also that even this one who was pulled over likely won’t get the point until it’s too late to spare someone else’s life, property, and time

even so, it was nice to see, and at least for a breath or two the road ahead of this driver was noticeably safer than it had been when he was careening into our rear view mirror
