    There just isn’t any end to reckless driving in this City. Oh yeah, blame it on the bike lanes on Rowena!

  2. My friends worry that they’ll go to jail for life if a clueless ped steps in front of their car and dies. They don’t believe me when I say it’s just a (relative) slap on the wrist.

    Anyone know if this person will have their license revoked for life?
