From Teresa's Mosqueda Twitter account:

"Dear drivers, please stop ignoring "NO TURN ON RED" signs. Dear @seattledot, please ban right on red citywide so that stopping is the default behavior. Dear #WaLeg, please legalize automated camera enforcement. Sincerely, Someone who doesn't want to die on her trip home."

I was with you on the first sentence. Everything after that is bad policy.

I hate the term "War on Cars".

Cars declared war on all other modes of transportation in the 1950's. Other modes of transportation relegated to sidewalks, or dismantled.

But multimodal transportation is democratic and can fix many problems caused by car culture.

Hi #fediverse, I'm an illustrator and graphic designer based out of New Delhi. Through editorial illustration, fiction and non-fiction comics I look at intersections of visual design + research with contemporary politics, social and human rights issues.

I also make political comics compiled under #politricks on most social media platforms. Links where they're supposed to be if you're interested :)
