Turtleboy was in Palmer yesterday as part of our Tour de Turtle bone ride series. We were driving down some country road when a truck came by and it was spreading sand everywhere. What a brilliant idea huh? A preemptive sanding for the inevitable snow that was coming. We all remember the disaster that happened after the first two inch snowfall we got a couple weeks ago in Worcester, so I’m sure this time around the City of Worcester, Paul Moosey, and Ed Augustus took extra care to make sure this didn’t happen again.
Apparently Worcester has never heard of the concept of sanding the roads before a storm, because between 5-10 PM there were over 60 car accidents, including hit and runs, property damages, and personal injuries. Here’s a couple fun ones that turtle riders sent us:
That’s a seven vehicle crash that occurred on Webster Square. The person who sent us those pictures was actually in the accident. We asked her if it was the fault of bad driving, or the road conditions:
“Oh yeah, it was sheer ice. It was either hit the light pole or the car. I went for the car. Somebody called for the sander. Pretty sure the cop did. Then a random citizen comes down the hill, screaming at the cop that it’s nothing but ice starting a little before Cleveland Ave and the cop needs to go do something about it because people were sliding all over. The cop said “Do I look like a fucking sander?! What do you want me to do? Call the fucking City!” The guy went in the other side of the ride and waved to cars to slow down for a good 10min. Wish I had gotten that shit on tape! The cop was so overwhelmed with the hand full of registrations & licenses he had in his hand, he gave it back to me & said he write the shit up later, because it’s gonna take him half the day to write it all up! A Honda Civic did a nice 180 too, but was lucky nobody was coming down the hill at the time. He pulled over to the side & crept his way down the hill. What a fucking mess!!!
The best part is that 20 minutes later the sander came by:
Oops!!! Yea, you might wanna have the roads sanded BEFORE the snow comes. Especially since we all knew the snow was coming right at rush hour. Just a thought.
Another day, another screw up by the City Manager. This is why we refused to accept his apology after the last screw up. Because he didn’t mean it. Apologies are only good if you stop doing whatever it is you’re apologizing for. This is why politicians shouldn’t be city managers.
