Everyone’s Doing It

posted by on November 4 at 10:55 AM

Seattle AutoNet—a blog “on cars, daily traffic, wet roads and better driving—just endorsed a “yes” vote on Proposition 1 (mass transit) and a “no” vote on Tim Eyman’s Initiative 985 (opening HOV lanes to all traffic).

Even though we’re an auto blog, we think that a vote in favor of light rain is not a vote against cars, but a vote to build much needed infrastructure. […]

Nobody loves a 500 hp Viper that can tear across 520 in under 20 seconds as much as we do, but we also love the environment and our city even more. That’s why we’re supporting Prop 1.

Who wouldn't vote for "light rain"? I mean, as opposed to heavy rain. Sunshine would be even better.

That, and it's much easier to drive your Viper across 520 in under 20 seconds when there are less cars on the road.

I totally am in favor of light rain.

And that other thing, light rail.

@2 says it best.

I love these people. Go to someplace like treehugger and you typically see comments like "why do we even make these sorts of cars" and "why do speedometers go about 65 mph". Sheesh I guess leftists really are statists.
