Two street scenes documenting safety that isn't.
We were sitting on the porch for a Sunday afternoon Scrabble game when there was a commotion on Spring Street. Someone traveling northbound on 11th decided to turn eastbound onto Spring. He didn't make it very far amid a crescendo of horns from westbound traffic, otherwise eager to cut through town as quickly as possible because they consider such trasit the 11th commandment.
Once the cars passed the wayward vehicle well in excess of the speed limit, the confused driver was free to turn around and begin westbound travel in the one-way fashion.
Bob Caesar likes to say that all this is indicative of one-way safety.
