    The problem is that GZ are not buying new cars. So auto makers are running commercials that make new cars fast an exciting. Safety is an after thought.  Reminds me of the joe camel ads to promote smoking.

    Perhaps we could spend some of the money that we have for closing roads to cars to finally do something about the dangerous and loud driving that goes on at Alki and Harbor aves every night? Mr. Saka?

    After midnight, I heard cars streakng along Alki at or near 100 mph. And not the first time. Perhaps one of them lost control. Any additional details?

Sorry, comment time is over.
