City space utilization

Posted By on Wed, Feb 19, 2020 at 10:06 AM

The more I traverse the city, the more annoying I find it that we have two large car dealerships within our urban core (and even more farther north). Should not we be more critical of how we utilize our city’s space, and not allow glorified parking lots to set up shop, especially in the city with one of the lowest vacancy rates in the country? I’ll remind you that one of these lots demolished a gaggle of homes to have more space for its products to sit on. These businesses are better suited to areas like Burnside, Bayers Lake or Dartmouth Crossing, and not a highly populated downtown area. The sales lot model is dated and not very space-efficient. There could be dozens of homes built in these spaces, or small condos with ground-level storefronts to enliven the areas. Imagine Robie Street without car dealerships, and instead with new small businesses and more places to live! Does it not sound like an improvement? — Teethoflions

The exception to the rule

Posted By on Wed, Feb 12, 2020 at 4:10 PM

I saw your look of confusion as I passed by, blaring my horn at you. Look: the carshare parking spots are for carshare cars. Not for German-made luxury vehicles idling life away. So  had to park farther away and walk through even more treacherous shitice because of you. Thanks. If I seem overly enraged, it’s because this is hardly the first time I’ve had this happen.

My every day seems filled with assholes for whom rules and regulations apply to everyone, everywhere. Unless and until they apply to them because they have more urgent business. Carshare parking only? Not if I need to just pull in for a bit. No smoking? Yeah, but I really need a dart right now. Quiet study area? Yeah, but I gotta take this call. Fire lane? I’ll only be in the liquor store for a minute (I’m looking at you, everyone on Baker Street). And what are the odds of a fire, anyway?

Fuck you people and your fucking exceptionalism. If you want to live in a place where the rules only apply to other people, I suggest heading south. The Tweeter-in-Chief is all about that. “They” say the road to hell is paved in good intentions. That aphorism was invented by exceptionalists like you, who want to excuse constantly acting in bad faith. Guess what? You’re not that special. Follow the fucking rules. Improve your intentions. Please. — Slip ’N’ Slide

More Halifax driver fury

Posted By on Fri, Dec 13, 2019 at 12:51 PM

It must’ve been hilarious to almost hit me with your car and watch me jump back because you weren't looking. It's really too bad you didn't take up my offer when I asked you to get out of your car right then, or even the second time when you pulled up on me trying to scare me. Nah homie, get out of the car—I'm not fucking playing. You think it's funny to almost take someone's life? Let's laugh together next time. This isn't the first time, either. This happens daily and now I'm on a warpath for Halifax drivers who don't think they need to pay attention to pedestrians.

To all inconsiderate and stupid asshole pedestrians and bicyclists

Posted By on Thu, Nov 21, 2019 at 2:38 PM

Fuck you all inconsiderate asshole pedestrians who take their time traipsing the crosswalks. Your lazy asses may not be in any hurry to get to anywhere, but the people in the 10-deep lineup of cars waiting for you to cross the road certainly have somewhere to go. Also fuck you all inconsiderate and stupid bicyclists who occupy the road at crawling speed and hold up traffic behind you for miles. Get on the sidewalk and walk, you incompetent morons. Also fuck you all stupid pedestrians with their stupid noses in their stupid phones who jump on the road without checking the traffic. Also fuck you all bicyclists who are on the roads at night wearing dark clothes and no light or reflectors. Clearly you are all stupid assholes who are incapable of recognizing the danger you put yourselves in. Too bad for the motherfuckers who hit you because of your stupidity.

Illegal parkers!

Posted By on Thu, Nov 14, 2019 at 10:20 AM

To those who work in the Agricola Street area: Please don’t park on Agricola Street! You are illegally parked and you make it difficult for clients of the small businesses on Agricola! Park in residential areas and walk a little farther! Be considerate of the community you work in!

Dear people, there's this thing in all cars in trucks—it's called the turn signal indicator. Most, if not all, know this exists, however many do not what it is for. Please go to YouTube or Google for operating instructions before you get yourself killed.

Bikes, lanes and automobiles

Posted By on Thu, Sep 5, 2019 at 2:36 PM

Do all jackass drivers in this province get a driver’s permit, regardless of incompetency and stupidity? I drive, walk and use my bicycle in good weather. I’m 63, and I have seen/experienced my share of close calls and collisions. While cycling in a bike lane in Halifax (during daylight) over the Labour Day Weekend, a driver trailing my bike-riding wife drove parallel to me, when I was riding carefully on my bicycle. We’re side-by-side on Lower Water Street. Not quite certain what this clueless-looking driver wanted to do, I started braking. Sure enough, the driver cuts in front of me and crosses the bike lane into a parking lot. WTF? Another head-shaking close call, courtesy of a careless and crack-brained motorist.

How to solve traffic congestion in peninsular Halifax—NOT

Posted By on Thu, Aug 29, 2019 at 3:02 PM

hires.jpg
Throw more asphalt and concrete at it? I think those 40-foot long asphalt ramp thingies on South Park Street are raised bike lanes, and now there are four-inch-high concrete bollards along the rest of SP Street as well. I left work at noon today, and the buses and big trucks going opposite ways could barely squeeze past each other without scraping their sides. How is reducing SP St. to a single lane in either direction going to solve traffic congestion? It won't. Every time a bus stops, traffic will get backed up behind it—and I've heard that city hall wants to reduce Spring Garden Road to a single lane in either direction as well. Are they insane?

I hate motorists as much as the next bloke, but they have to drive and park SOMEWHERE. And I can see those asphalt ramps and bollards getting smoked by the first snowplow that passes them this winter. And when the city demolishes the Cogswell Interchange? Best dust off your sturdiest walkin' shoes, folks, 'cuz it'll be the only way to get around that won't make you bonkers over the next five years!

Full moon driving?

Posted By on Thu, Aug 23, 2018 at 2:12 PM

Yesterday I drove 40 minutes from Halifax to Dartmouth and two people cut out in front of me. I honked and was ignored, then at my destination I had to honk again when another driver went to back out of a parking area and didn't look and see me. Do you like raised insurance and wrecking other people's vehicles? Look where you're going and stop trying to put your own needs ahead of others'.

Double bitch

Posted on Wed, Jul 6, 2016 at 4:00 AM

First off to the unqualified clowns who "built" the new long lake trail. Way to fucking go! Tear down a perfectly portioned trail for what? to drive a dump truck through? Don't know about you but dogs don't wear work boots nor do people on a sunny day potentially with strollers. Nice work for your suburbia. I bitch but have succumbed to this bullshit trail as it does contain my fave spot so bitch number two is fuck off with breaking glass! Get it. old party spot also ruined from bullshit trail. fuck off with smashing. We begrudgingly still go Also thanks for all the lumber from your horrible clean up job, that's a plus —Pretty sure we've met
