Snow has fallen in our fair city a grand total of once this winter, but yet every day, many times a day, I hear cars equipped with studded tires drive by.
Not every day, but many times, I have also heard people whine and complain (whinge, even) about the poor quality of our streets. Indeed, the need for street repairs and road work has several times been cited as an argument against expensive municipal projects.
Gee, how might these two things be related? I want to follow city councilors - and peole who chime in during council meetings - around and see if any of them a) use studded tires; and b) whine about roads. I do, strangely believe it, have better things to do with my time.
Such as? Why, whinge about studded tires!
