This Ain't No Central Park
Not a pretty sight. I've never been a fan of those downtown horse drawn carriages. They just don't work on our streets which combine cars, buses, and now bikes. The carriages are a major traffic hazard, just check them out sometime at North Temple and State Streets. What a PITA.
OK, they an be romantic. But we don't have a huge Central Park downtown where the carriages can travel without vehicular interference. The collapsed horse the other day was only the latest of several incidences involving the carriages. Better to take the carriages to Liberty Park, or Wheeler Farm, or the This Is the Place Monument.
A concerned citizen has started a petition to remove the carriages from downtown and save the horses. Sign it out here...
