Sunday's parting shot
A head-on collison this evening reported around 6:15 on Avenue A between 10th Street and 11th Street... no reports of injuries... and no idea how this happened... thanks to the longtime reader for the photo...
I can guess from experience how this happened. A few weeks ago, I was driving north on Avenue A. The southbound side was backed up a bit while they waited for someone to make a right turn onto 11th Street, but they had to wait because people were crossing the street. All of a sudden, a car from the southbound lane decided that he did not want to wait, and he drove at a high rate of speed southbound in the northbound lane heading directly at me. I had to quickly pull over, or I would have been hit head on. He was going so fast that he easily could have lost control.
This reminds me of the massive restaurant shacks on lower ave b, almost every large car/truck has to cross the double yellow line when they drive by. I know there have been a couple small incidents but reporting this has done nothing and I'm fearing more will happen. It's so weird how the DOT isn't taking streets seriously. Everything is like a little kid joke right now, randomly closed off streets, painted on bike lanes and barriers and bright blue citibike stations, put that shit back to normal, pandemic's over. 7th st has been a shitshow too now that the weather is getting better, since they are for some reason still blocking it off on the weekends like it's a friggin amusement park.
