There is something very wrong with the world...

There are some people out there that don't like traffic zooming past their street. I get that... Slow down in residential areas... However, these people are blocking traffic with furniture and other junk...

Listen to this line...
"A driver of a 4x4 didn't so much disapprove - he was too crazed and violent for that. He seemed to be made psychotic by the idea that roads could exist for anything other than him to drive on," he says.
Let me ask you this... Don't roads only exist for me to drive on?

How about this...
There were gender differences too, says Mr Dewan. Male drivers didn't seem to like the idea of driving across the carpet. But female drivers were less sympathetic and more aggressive, with a stronger "get out of my way attitude".
So, he moves into a house that's built too close to the road for him... He picked the house...He knew what the road was like... Now he thinks drivers are selfish...
As the owner of two cars, Mr Dewan says he's far from being anti-motorist, but he wants "mutual respect" between drivers and pedestrians and to stop the "deluded, selfish" way that traffic has come to dominate urban spaces.
What's even worse about this all these urban "hipsters" out there think this is just wonderful.

Am I the only sane man left in the world?

I have never seen anything like this. Imagine if this was done somewhere in East Baltimore? We'd be on the national news again with a Joseph Palcynski-like stand-off between driver and weird point-maker.

Yeah, no doubt... say what you want about Baltimore... But we don't put up with crap like that.

Scaggsville... even less so...

With freeway shootings on the rise here, I doubt anyone would try this in my neighborhood.

Mr. Zoom has a theory that the more unintelligent one is, the louder they are. This is an example, only the loud is observed as playing dollhouse in the street.

I have to say - as a rookie parent - I wouldn't mind a little more enforcement of speed limits in residential communities.
