Livery driver. Ticket and separate infra please.
Robert, what about Nico's post or comments resembled vigilantism? It's exactly the opposite... he's using a community forum to contact the police, not handling the situation himself. The post is polite and clear, and includes the most passive form "lobbying" I've seen.
Nobody needs to decide which forum is or is not appropriate for this kind of advocacy. We have city employees for that. They can choose to take or leave any specific details in a post as needed.
If you truly want to work constructively together on safer road infrastructure, it probably makes sense not to antagonize people who post issues that concern them on here. It would be even better to stop ascribing malice to actions (e.g. bikers exploit deaths to further their agenda) or to generalize (e.g. biker vigilantism).
Robert, who put you in charge of deciding how SCF is meant to be used? You just said it's a utility for requesting that something be fixed. Nico is very specifically trying to get the city to fix this ongoing issue with illegally parked cars in the bike lane. Seems like a reasonable use of the platform.
I completely read and understood what you were referring to as "lobbying". It's painfully clear you have a point of view about this issue rather than his actual use of the forum. Maybe you are the one who should be thinking about what lobbying you are doing on here. Nico posted three words that made you call him a vigilante and tell him what he could or couldn't say.
Wishing we really could have a constructive dialogue that didn't involve demagoguery.
Robert, for the third time, I completely understand your specific criticism of Nico's post and the three words he used that you called lobbying. I agreed in my very first post that "it was the most passive form lobbying I've seen." It seems that you can't defend your position, so instead you complain "you clearly didn't read what my objection was".
Cyclists who post on here or who go to city meetings aren't vigilantes or bad people. They aren't "lobbyists" with agendas. They are people who genuinely want to see the roads be safer because they feel frightened when they bike. Stop attacking people for sincerely held positions under the guise that they are malicious.
Non sequitur, to be sure: Every Cambridge cyclist who wants safer streets needs to (1) Register to vote, and encourage their friends to register to vote and (2) vote for protected cycling infrastructure friendly candidates in the 2019 Cambridge City Council elections.
We did well in 2017, we need to seal the deal in 2019!!!
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
