I used to take my son to a home daycare along Garth Street near Bendamere. Pulling into/out of a driveway along Garth is a challenge, at best. The care provider didn't take the kids anywhere because she didn't want a gaggle of children walking along Garth, and I can't say I disagreed.

So to be fair, I think Mr. Whitehead does put his money where his mouth is with respect to fast traffic and thoroughfares on the Mountain - there are plenty of mountain streets with the same kind of horribly fast traffic we get on the lower city one-ways, with no real buffer (boulevards or bike lanes) protecting pedestrians on the narrow sidewalks. Garth street is functionally a "sacrifice zone" like Cannon. So I don't see his stance on the lower-city traffic as something hypocritical.

I just see it as plain wrong. Consistent, but still wrong.
