thank you so much, speeding F450, for making me aware that the road i was running on narrows dangerously around that blind corner precisely after the sidewalk ends.
i trust that when you yelled ‘DUMB BITCH’ out of your window, you were directing it either to one of three other parties involved in the near-fatal accident.
1. the OTHER speeding pickup truck, going so fast he crossed the double yellow line on the curve, leaving you no room to give me adequate space.
2. you may have been cursing yourself as to the shocking lack of foresight that there might be a pedestrian near a very popular park.
3. the Department of Transportation, i.e. the rich, white, old men who travel mostly by fancy car service with a personal driver, who gave their signatures on the plans for the infrastructure there, with not a care in the world on how it turns out, unless of course someone dies and the family sues.
in the event of the third option being the intended target of your anger, i will forward your eloquent response, as it most DEFINITELY couldn’t have been directed at the low-hanging vulnerable fruit in the form of a pedestrian with the audacity to utilize the streets in her own neighborhood which she pays to maintain just as much as you do.
thank you for your passion on transportation infrastructure and the shockingly shortsightedness of car-centric design.
yours, luckily alive to type this,
