Traffic Management Authority replaced the Chicago Traffic Cop some years ago.
Instead of having trained police officers with police radio’s regulating traffic – it was turned over to lay people……
Regular Joe’s and Jane’s given bright yellowy-green vests, plastic light-up batons and the AUTHORITY to handle the Chicago traffic – both vehicles and pedestrians.
As you might be able to tell I am not fond of them.
So this morning when one of them stopped all of the pedestrians from crossing the street way before he needed to.....the man next to me said....
“Fuck This!” as he walked across anyway.
I must say – next time a TMA stops me from crossing an intersection for no good reason other than he or she can....
...I am taking my stand from that man.
it’s a plan
