Another reason to ban vehicles, or at the very least mechanically/ electronically limit the max speed of cars.
The title is misleading. The Trashla was parked at a charging station, however the speeding vehicle was going so fast it was taking out everything in it’s path like a cannonball.

Cars are tools of terror.

I deeply believe that New York City should make the busses, trains, and local ferries 100% free and open ridership.
Just raise the city income tax to cover it.
And move forward with the congestion pricing for Manhattan cars.
Start reprogramming your traffic lights.
If you can’t reclaim the road space, maybe you can reclaim the road time.
Every year when filing tax returns, people can claim a no car rebate of $1100. While processing the tax return, the state queries the DMV car registration database. If that person had a registered car at any time during the year for while they are filing, tax fraud! If not, all good, they get $1100.
Then after that is done, the state adds up how much money it had to give out in rebates. It divides that number by the number of registered vehicles. Car registrations, at least in NY, last for two years. So now double that number and add it to the existing car registration fee. Recalculate this annually. It won’t ever be exact, but it will be good enough.
(($1100 * number of taxpayers with 0 cars) / number of registered cars) * 2 = $amount to add to the car registration fee

Make this everywhere!
But despite how many of us there are, the narrative we’ve been sold is that without a car you are not a person who has valid mobility needs. That story is particularly alarming when you consider the equity implications of who is considered a nonentity.
People without driver’s licenses, both who identify as disabled and those who do not, are more likely to be Black, indigenous, or people of color. People with disabilities are four times more likely to be unable to drive, and two to three times more likely to live in a zero-vehicle household.
Oh yeah, we’d better also stop spending on Science, space, and technology too - after all, it correlates at an even greater rate with suicide than cars do with trump voting. And we should Ban cheese, which correlates with deaths from bedsheet entanglement. And chicken, that’s a good one, because it per capita consumption of chicken correlates with crude oil imported to the US.
They’re all correlations backed by data, so if we’re going to forget that correlation doesn’t mean causation - especially when some random twitter poster with zero data is just pulling a conclusion direct from their arse - well, I hope you didn’t like NASA…
