White line fever

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2007 at 2:32 PM


We just watched as Central Arkansas Transit had a car flatbedded away  from the corner of Cumberland and President Clinton Ave, down the  street from our building. The transgression: a fender jutting over  the white line on the south side of President Clinton Ave. -- the  line that marks the streetcar right of way. The trolley had been  stuck for 20-odd minutes out in front of the offices of the  Arkansas Times, waiting for the obstruction to be cleared. Almost on  cue, less than a minute after the tow truck rolled away, what  appeared to be the angry owner of the car arrived on the scene, just in time for a chat with a waiting bicycle cop.

They're serious about those lines, folks.
