@robbystk @cadadr @clacke @publius @swiley I spent two weeks with a trauma surgery service in a hospital in one of the most violent areas of the US. About half of the injured people that came into the emergency department were hurt in motor vehicle collisions. Yet what does public discourse talk about?

@be just guessing here, but alcohol probably contributes a fair bit to adverse incidents including automobile-related ones. I guess both those aspects have equal space in public discourse.

I'm familiar. Not 100% on board with the viewpoints expressed, in particular because of the disregard of, or even mockery directed toward, electric street railways, which are an incredibly powerful tool of urban mobility. But a lot of what is said is sensible.
