Boston is a tough ****ing city. You're liable to get shot vandalizing people's property there.
What area are you from? How long have you lived there?
And yeah, as it should be. What's wrong with that. People in America are direct and real. They will not do anything unless you deserve it. My friend was driving on the I-10 in LA, I think during horrible traffic. Turns out this was caused by a stalled car driven by visible immigrants. He observed people throwing their starbucks lattes as the passed the car, and pulling closer, the car was caked from all the coffee from the morning! Funny, it could have been avoided if they at least moved the car to the shoulder!
I wish I could shoot the punks who broke the windows on my street. In Montreal this month 3 harmless people got shot (and killed) by cops. There are way too many thugs walking around vandalizing property. And believe it or not, because they can't be shot they have no fear and commit more crimes. I hear Vancouver is #1 for vandalism in Canada. There is something seriously wrong with this picture.
Not blaming cops or our justice system, but this stuff keeps happening year after year, while people in poverty increase. Saying that Canada is all safe and sound is complete BS. I was seriously scared for my life driving on the Turcot in Montreal. They also closed a bridge down under the threat of collapse (Honore-Mercier). Now they are diverting 60,000 or whatever cars A DAY on another structurally aging bridge. Never ever felt that way in US on any piece of infrastructure. Boston? lol. They buried 3 highway interchanges downtown when they realized traffic space was lacking.
Toronto is just a joke in that sense. We get more cars on the road, lanes downtown (Dupont & Lansdowne) get narrowed from 2 lanes to 1, each way. Last week I saw 3 car accidents on one trip from Etobicoke to downtown using Dundas st. What is going to happen to this city in 5-10 years? Will downtown be permanently gridlocked?
Dunno why this is turning into an infrastructure thread lol.
I really wish Rob Ford could rebuild the Spadina expressway. How awesome would it be if they continued the Allen Rd underground in a sick tunnel to the QEW. But seriously, the DVP needs at least 2 extra lanes in each direction.
"Lo there do I see my father.
Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever"
