I wish this law had been in place 3 years ago on St. Patrick's Day when a drunk frat-boy-type threw a full can of Miller Lite at me from a 3rd story balcony. I was riding my bicycle down my street, trying to avoid that awful holiday. He was drunk at 11 am.
Luckily, he missed and the can exploded near my back tire. I called the cops, and they came, and said they could go in and get him if I wanted to press charges. I decided to let it go. I regret that decision.
(I'm not even going to bother to join in on the driver vs. bicyclist rant because it is pointless. I concur fully with Pvt. McCormick)
Interesting article. Also, from Carl Smith's book about the plan, it sounds like Burnham had many more small plans and social programs that did not fit with the Commercial Club's thinking and were scratched in the final draft.
Horchata, the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) is working on a long-range comprehensive plan right now and would love your input!
