The motorists be damned

To The Editor:

Yes, the streets throughout NYC — not just in The Bronx — are in bad shape.  But who are we supposed to complain to.  City Hall?  The mayor doesn’t want to see any cars in NYC.  The Public Advocate?  What does he advocate for the public, anyway?  We motorists need to organize. Right now we don’t have any organization speaking up in our behalf.

Those “third-world roads” impose added burdens on ordinary New Yorkers.

February 19 I had a flat tire while driving in Brooklyn and was told by the repair shop I found on Fourth Avenue that the problem wasn’t the tire; air leaked out due to a cracked rim. The mechanic told me I must have hit a pothole.  Of course I had — a few days earlier on Broadway, near 225th Street. It cost me $80 to have the rim welded.  Until motorists organize, our driving costs are  going to get higher and higher, and the roads will get more rutted — the part of the roads not turned over to bicycles, that is.  By the way — anyone look at gas prices at local pumps, lately?   I think  we are getting government to the people– not of, by and for the people.
