Tim Bryant had a great quote on Facebook: He is “at the same time amazed and yet also unsurprised that Athens, of all places, makes a statewide issue out of crossing the street. “
“Give the driver more target value, if you will,” ACC traffic engineer Steve Decker said. (Target value is right—hey, a guy with the flag! Two points!)
Today, because TV news stations are copycats, a Channel 2 truck was parked in the Flagpole parking lot. A cameraman explained to me that, to them, it’s a lighthearted break from the usual TV news fare of murders and fires.
Must be a slow news day in Atlanta.
