It's a Regime. Why Should They Care How Many People Are Killed and Injured by Streetcars and Tracks?

Hi, Yupette,

Arlington County is run by a one-party political machine that's been in power for more than 30 years. County Board is fixated on its pet projects and could care less about the consequences. Local media won't provide information about streetcar alternatives, much less discuss the hazards of streetcars and streetcar tracks.

Almost ALL Arlington's decision makers are near or at retirment age. Most don't live in Arlington. What do THEY care if you slip, break your arm, and suffer a concussion crossing wet slippery tracks on your bicycle?

Zimmerman et. al., don't care anymore. They're so bad that they're creating a transportation "system" where non-residents get to commute to Arlington, one to a vehicle and Arlington residents get to walk and ride bicycles everywhere, four seasons a year.  How dumb is that?

Larry,

Yes. It's a Regime. Like Castro. Like Quadaffi. Like Mubarak. Government is all about them, their pet people, their pet interests, keeping themselves in power forever.

Non-resident SOV-based transportation "system"? You mean the 700+ new parking spaces the CB just approved for a pet developer in Rosslyn and another 700+ new parking spaces the CB just approves for another pet developer in Crystal City?

For profit local blogs?? You mean like Arl Now where 2/3 of the comments about the Pike streetcar come from County employees, consultants, contractors, developers, etc., who would financially benefit from a Pike streetcar system?

ALL the local media completely censor information about alternative transit systems on the Pike (articulated buses).

The Biketard organizations are the worst. They would rather die from streetcar tracks than live with BRT. More Gimme Groups who are on the County Board's Gimme List to the tune of hundreds of thousands a year.

The irresponsibility is pervasive. Arlington County is corrupt from top to bottom.

Total cost of injuries plus property damage caused by a streetcar system on the Pike over 20 years would exceed the cost of constructing the system.

Arlington 2020: Joe and Jane Boeing, Bob and Linda Vornado, get to drive into Crystal City in their his and hers 2019 BMW SUVs and get valet parking and use of the Jay Fisette - Walter Tejada Longbridge Aquatic and Field Sports Center free of charge.

Arlington Sheeple who pay for the Corrupt County Board's vanity projects get to bicycle everywhere, all four seasons. Get to use Longbridge on a "space available" basis.

Bob Vornado gets to drive his Mercedes SUV from his estate on the Potomac at Ft. Hunt to his personal parking space in Crystal City while you get put on a car free diet and ride a bicycle.

Bob Vornado will also have a personal parking space at the $250 million Boeing-Vornado Longbridge Sports and Recreation Complex.

How many millions will the County Board's "Car Free Diet" charade cost the sheeple over the next decade?
