Since the Normal Town Council meeting was shorter than usual, one ISU kid only had to wait about an hour to speak since he was off agenda. He brought 15-20 other kids with him that didn’t speak.
This guy is a freshman Political Science major at ISU. He’s worried about crossing College Ave around School Street and getting hit by a car.
He might be a future politician perfect for Illinois: Laws don’t matter.
Students are too busy to wait at the stop light for the WALK sign. They also don’t have the money to pay fines for jaywalking. Therefore, ticketing violators won’t solve the problem. Personal responsibly plays no part in the life of college kids.
He wants the 30,000+ permanent residents of Normal to build him and his buddies an overpass or underpass. He has a bright future in politics here!
