nerdwallet rated Boston the worst US city for car drivers. No surprise there given traffic, snow, parking shortages and prices, and costs.

Tickets are priced accordingly.

Boston needs to take some baby steps like an Indy car or F1 race, Superbowl, mega conventions etc. before even thinking it can be ready for an Olympics. So, bring it on!

Keep riding on city sidewalks at 12 mph - too fast across blind driveways, and keep experiencing what it feels like to crash into cars.

Driving and bicycling cut into time with smart phones, so they rather take public transit or walk and stare at their screens at the same time.

Tufts should respond by turning off the heat and hot water in classrooms and dorms to see how committed students are to fossil fuel divestment.

GPS ankle bracelets are more fashionable than Air Jordans!

Wilson wasn't on probation. He was not convicted of a crime. He was awaiting trial. The GPS was included with the bail to make sure he showed up for trial and med conditions of his release. Its a whol more »

How about pedestrians wear $4 reflective neon safety vests when they go out walking at night, especially in the rain? Maybe the state welfare agencies can give them out when putting people up in motel more »

Absolutely need to use forces of supply and demand. Want an on-street parking permit for Beacon Hill, North End etc., then it should cost more than one for Hyde Park and other lower demand areas. Park more »

Florida may be backwards in some people's minds, but ahead of Mass in transparency. A couple years ago, I had requested the email addresses of people signed up for town email notices (for protected po more »

Reimbursement for legal fees is vital and its shameful that Mass is one of four not doing this. Too often the appeals board denies requests, leaving a lawsuit as the only recourse. The board backs cit more »

Was there a gun and spent shell casings found inside the boat to indicate Tsarnaev shot at police for them to respond with 100+ shots hitting the boat plus who knows how many shots missing the boat? more »

The bigger issue is that parents are nearly middle aged now when starting families so they are not taking their kids skiing. Bad knees etc. keep many from participating with kids, so fewer families go more »

gmcurran, look at the end of that NYT article. Prius drivers among the worst for failing to stop! This is also why bicyclists don't stop. They think being more green absolves them of breaking rules. G more »

Enforcement requires the laws to change. No bicyclist has to pay any fines, so cops don't bother. Until bike fines are increased and their driving license cab get suspended for non-payment, the enforc more »
