    I’m an alternative transportation person in that I believe there’s an alternative to allowing reckless driving to get worse and worse. Other than that, cars are fine with me.

  3. God forbid we ask drivers to watch where they’re going and avoid sending other people to the hospital!

    Do they sell “Whoops” cards? Maybe the driver can send one to the victim in the hospital – I’m sure he’d appreciate the gesture.

  4. Sadly, you do realize that sometimes these things are an accident. Oh that’s right, in your stupid head every driver is out for blood. You are a fricken moron. Transporation Alternative people are sickening.

  5. Shhhhhhh, don’t give away the secret!

    Now let’s all get back to professing to care greatly about safety while simultaneously fighting against all actual efforts to enforce the driving laws.

    She merely has to say the secret word (“accident”) and in return, the system gives the counter-password (“no charges filed”). And all is well. The victim? He can’t talk, who gives a shit.

    Must have been one of those pesky invisible motorcycles.
