On the way in, I had an uncomfortably close interaction with an oblivious driver and a nice conversation with a bus driver. On the way home, I came upon a man downtown who was passed out ans who everyone ignored. And the best part of the day was riding home through Greenwood's Summer Streets event.
I'm not anti-car by any means, but lately I've been thinking a lot about my street and how drivers behave on it. I live in Greenwood, and most of the nearby residential streets only have enough room for one car to drive. My street is wider, and as a result many people in cars drive way too fast. My neighbors are putting up signs and flags to try to get people to slow down. We have more children living on this block than at any other time in the 12 years I've lived here. I've been considering guerrilla action, like leaving a recycling container in the street. Or when I'm out watering the garden, hosing down cars, that go too fast.
