If you hate the gays, muslims, women, immigrants and the USA, VOTE TRUMP! Trumps patriotism extends only to his wallet and anyone who thinks trump is for them, is delusional. Trump is for trump and NO ONE else!
that makes absolutely no sense..... you knew they were holier than themselves?
Please explain how if there was no real bottleneck effect at the point of where the lane was removed how the traffic backups on Maybank and supposedly SamRitt can be blamed on lane closure?
Yes the study was flawed. The lane should have been opened for use not only to see how many users but also to see the effects of less cars.
As for the 3 to 5 minute claim could you please post link as to were that info can be found.
The real traffic delays during evac are on I-26 ( and every day for that matter ) not on the islands. Spend the money on fixing I-26.
Because the 45 seconds was at the bridge, not beyond it. Even they admitted to the mistake of not analyzing the oncoming roads and traffic. The real number, if I recall, sits at 3-5 minutes if not more.
Plus, remember, the DOT can take back the lane at ANY time. Even before construction is finished, hence them trying to rush an analysis by the DOT now.
Also, when you live in an evac zone and complain about roads being built until after you get hit with a storm and can't get out, then you deserve to be washed away in the surge.
WE ALWAYS KNEW Y'ALL WERE HOLIER THAN THOU
Let's see if I have this straight - council not willing to spend $3 million on pedestrian lane that will only cost car drivers :45 seconds in commute time but are pushing for spending upwards of $700 million to extend I-526 that will only save drivers :90 seconds of commute time ( not to mention the $500,000 just to restart the process )
Yeah because everyone loves to ride home in 90 degrees and pop up thunderstorms.
This should have been done years ago. Now with the growth already happening and planned, DOT would just re-claim the lane soon after.
Weed out the feel-gooders, the hippies, the people that won't ride because of distance to the bridge, and the people that won't ride 75% of the time and what are you left with ridership wise?
Best way to alleviate traffic would be to offer alternate solutions. I.e put in a bike lane. It's the if you build it, they will come concept. The only real problem with that is how people of the greater Charleston area lack any foresight and do not seem to adapt to change very well.
We get it, you're against Trump. No one cares.
Ride your little bikes right into the Ashley.
Trump Brags About Using “Other People’s Money” Amidst Reports Of Illegal Charity Spending [VIDEO] https://youtu.be/WCpZyVtiz0s
September 21, 2016 2016 Election, Scandal, Teabagistan
Donald Trump bragged Tuesday there’s “nothing like” using other people’s money, hours after a report said he used more than $250,000 from his charitable organization to litigate lawsuits against his business interests. Trump, while calling for building safe zones in Syria financed by Gulf states, vaunted the benefits of doing business with “OPM.”
“It’s called OPM. I do it all the time in business. It’s called other people’s money,” Trump said. “There’s nothing like doing things with other people’s money because it takes the risk — you get a good chunk out of it and it takes the risk.”
His comments came on the heels of a Washington Post report published earlier Tuesday, which called attention to Trump’s funneling of contributions from the Donald J. Trump Foundation to charities in order to settle lawsuits against Trump. Trump has only sparsely contributed to his foundation. Instead, the foundation is largely funded by outside donors — not Trump himself.
How many violent crimes / attempted murders happened at Northwoods or Citadel mall in the decade 1985 to 1995? How many from 2005 to 2015?
I would contend that the situation would, in fact, be quantifiably worse in the latter decade. I am sure all sorts of crap happened as bad or worse in the past, but just not at these two malls. And that is the subject if this story.
Not sure if you follow local news much, but the sexual assault at a party at a CoC frat house 2-3 weeks ago seems to be the thing that drove this. Of course, one of the guys had cocaine and marijuana in his room too.
There must be a better way to handle this, rather than outright banning alcohol related events for greek life. I agree that knee jerk reactions in these types of situations typically end up causing more controversy. Hell, I was at Clemson during the whole Tucker Hipps ordeal and the administration reacted horribly. They punished greek life in its entirety just to send a message because of actions of one fraternity. Although it could've been handled differently, needless to say, it was a horrific incident that required some sort of action. Hazing at Clemson had always been bad, the issue was deep-seeded, but the Tucker Hipps death put a spotlight on it.
What exactly have COFC fraternities done to justify this ban on alcohol? Is there a Tucker Hipps incident that I'm unaware of? Maybe the full statement from McConnell states some hard evidence or data, but what's happening at COFC that isn't at every other college campus around the nation?
The real gateway drug? Alcohol. Weed has been lambasted as THE gateway drug by anyone and everyone in law-enforcement. A gateway drug is a legal drug that leads to illegal drugs and we must crack down on this substance. I have heard the argument time and again that weed leads to hard drugs but I submit that alcohol (and other prescriptions) leads to any and all illicit drugs. I am not suggesting we outlaw alcohol but it must be recognized that alcohol leads to various cocaine derivatives and opiates more than any other drug in the universe.
look what a desolate place citadel mall has turned in to partly due to crime and unruly behavior of groups making it an undesirable place to be and go with family.
