See the link below for the flyer I found on my door over Thanksgiving.
If you live in this area, please vote FOR the traffic-calming measures. You have
probably just received your ballot. If you have any influence with
someone who lives in this area, please ask them to vote FOR the
traffic-calming measures.

I also have a question for the forum. The flyer makes reference to the
COA of Redd St. What is the COA? I can tell you that the speed limit
was reduced to 25 mph on most of Redd earlier this year, followed by
the usual short period of radar enforcement of the new speed limit. My
estimate of the average driver's speed on Redd St. between Manchaca
and Mt. Vernon Dr. is ca. 40 mph. How does that relate to whatever COA
means?

I personally think it will always be us vs them, based on a a lot of experience. Anyone out there more optimistic than that?

Are you serious!? Three separate 911 calls before any response? I certainly wouldn't expect any sort of timely response, but three separate 911 calls? In my own experience I have never had any response in Austin or other parts of the nation when reporting sleepy drivers, erratic drivers, or dangerous conditions.

After they successively graveled my neighborhood and my two most used commuter routes, my complaint was that I started having flats once or twice weekly. I was using Schwalbe Marathons at the time. I switched to slime tubes and tires, which I overinflated to 80 PSI, and that solved that problem.

This driver has committed several felonies in Mexico, where the legal system is based on the Napoleonic code by which you are assumed guilty.
