Shawnee’s post: Week 2 Secondary Blog: The Crisis of Space and Selflessness
My comment: I’ve experienced this as well. Some individuals seem to forget that other people actually exist. And perhaps because they can take their time getting to wherever they need to be, they assume everyone else can too.
I don’t think there is an easy solution. There are pros and cons to narrowing the streets and widening the sidewalks. There are advantages and disadvantages to leaving public spaces as is. I agree with you though. Sometimes I wonder why it’s so hard to be more considerate. No one would lose in that scenario.
