It’s amazing how quickly my sympathy can wither

by sam on 08/15/2007

You know, I used to be somewhat sympathetic to the plight of pedicab owners in the city (and I still think that they should be encouraged given the city’s pollution and congestion issues), but the idea that vehicles, simply because they’re human-powered, shouldn’t be subject to regulation? Um, no.

But then again, I could just be projecting because I almost got run over yesterday by one of these guys pulling a left turn onto sixth avenue while very much not watching for the pedestrians (read: me) who had the right of way.
