As we were measuring the Upham and Basset roundabout to understand how such a thing at Mission and Middlefield might work, a guy stopped to tell us about the great deal he got on a car from someone who apparently drove over/through it at relatively high speed. Yay for speed enforcement through physical damage!

Yeah. one of the things we're talking a lot about is better decorations for traffic safety spaces. In this case in particular I think public works was going for quick and dirty and as little disruption to the neighborhood as possible with the quick build, but when this intersection comes up for real maintenance I hope they go for something that makes a statement.

And that isn't afraid to do speed enforcement through vehicle destruction.

Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
