If you've been following the comments on the Com regarding the city's pedestrian crossing ordinance, it may seem like Ann Arbor is suffering form a plague of rear-end collisions due to said ordinance. It's refreshing to read Albert McWilliams' post on the controversy, Smart folks in Ann Arbor crash their cars into stuff, blame City Council. As a very infrequent driver and frequent walker, I like the ordinance. It has made my daily crossing of Observatory at Washington Heights slightly less treacherous. It will be interesting to see how this issue plays out in tomorrow's city council election.
