Alright, things have gone a bit crazy again here in Tallinn. Some months ago the insane city major of Tallinn – Edgar Savisaar – decided to arrange a public voting for free public transport guarantee to Tallinn habitants. He is again clearly trying to grab support from poor and elderly people although they say that they want to make Tallinn more green and make life easier for everyone to use public transportation instead of a personal car. What the heck??? Who wants to ride in a bus now when all the hobos are legally sleeping and enjoying their life in buses? How can they seriously claim that this campaign will make people convert from a car to public transportation? Owning a car is already such a big expense that selling it and getting a monthly bus ticket is a non-remarkable expense. Are we really skipping buses because we have to buy a ticket? Heck no.
A couple of weeks ago Tallinn decided to start drawing new bus lanes around the city absolutely everywhere! When driving in the city now you basically can’t get anywhere since bus lanes are in place where you used to reach certain destinations. During rush hour, the bus lanes are empty while traffic is stuck for hours in the single lanes. Especially funny is the fact that they decided to draw DOUBLE bus lanes to certain roads! This is major insanity, at least in Tallinn where the city traffic is already quite messed up due to poor traffic arrangement.
At least it’s positive that people have gone a bit wild and have begun painting their own bus lanes everywhere on the roads. Finally Estonians have gotten over the fears and step up against the idiots in charge.
Edgar Savisaar (city major) himself, however, decided to use a bus lane to reach his destination quicker. What can we say, huh?
