Mayor Giuliani's Quality of Life Campaign
Mayor Giuliani's quality of life campaign Giuliani raises an interesting
point. Who's quality of life? It's obvious, the mayor and I have
different lives. It started with people who are panhandling and washing car
windows. There's been commotion recently about ticketing jaywalkers and
cyclists. My life is not negatively impacted by such actions. The most
upsetting things in New York City are speeding motorists, those who honk
unnecessarily, alarms that go off without cause and, most importantly, the
motorists who fail to yield right of way to pedestrians crossing the
The non-transportation related thing that bothers me most is litter. It's
amazing how people in New York City drop garbage. They slip the wrapper off
their candy bar and just drop it on the ground without even thinking about it.
A garbage can might me only feet away. Cigarette buts get flung all over
the place. People of all social and economic backgrounds do it. The litter
makes NYC look horrible and shows New Yorkers to be self absorbed jerks that
have no pride in themselves or their city.
