I would like to apologize for the profanity that I displayed on this blog the other night regarding a taxi driver incident that I encountered. It was inappropriate of me to publish the F word without warning. I deleted the post right away, but those who subscribe to the blog saw it. Sorry about that, folks.
[WARNING] I am now going to use profanity, so don’t read on if you don’t want to see it. [WARNING]
It was Saturday night around 10:45pm. Obviously it was dark and lots of people were out walking home from The Wizard of Oz at Neptune Beach. This taxi driver sped right though the stop sign at E. Beech Street. I’m a concerned citizen who is deeply worried about safety in this town. The last thing I want is to see another accident. “Stop at the Stop Sign,” I yelled. “Go F*ck Yourself,” she yelled back. It was a Long Beach love story.
Well, whatever. A$$hole drivers. We have so many of them around here.
This all goes along with what I believe is a major and continuous problem around here. Stop & speed-limit signs don’t do anything because many don’t obey those laws. It’s all a complete waste of money. They might as well take all those signs and throw them away. This years April Fools joke was originally going to be how the city was going to replace all the stop signs with photos of boobies – as a way to get people to stop. The reality it, it just might work. But we can’t do that, can we?
If I had my way, I would put speed humps at every single stop sign location. Force people to at least slow down, because the only way to get people to obey traffic laws is to hold their hands and guide them. With that, I send my apologizes to the taxi drier who speed through the stop sign. Perhaps if we held your hand, the stopping would have been a lot easier for you.
