It's not about you. The city doesn't have anything against you and doesn't value your time any less than anyone else's. I think people need to stop looking at things from a Me Me Me view, and think of the big picture.

When entire neighbourhoods speak up to ask for lower speed limits or crosswalks at key points (such as Aberdeen & Kent), that isn't just about "me". When activists and journalists point out very well known authors (Jacobs, etc) and citing academic papers and international examples, that's not just about "me" either. When I speak out against a danger which represents the single largest risk of death to my demographic group, that is about far more than just "me".

I cross whatever street I want whenever I want. They could fence it if they wish - I would simply jump the fence. I'm a fit, young, arrogant man, I can. When I speak up on behalf of seniors, children and the disabled - it isn't about me. It's about everybody. If that doesn't suit YOU, don't blame it on me.
