Vienna, Austria. 16 November 2014
Dear Worst Practitioners,
You are going to have to exercise your Polish for the finer points but 90 seconds spent strolling this new tram stop in Łódź, Poland tells an interesting story of who loves whom most in this modernizing city. 3.5 meters for the cars, 85 cm for the public transport user.
You will find an explanatory text on the site which if you pop it into Google Translate will give you the gory details and unintentionally hilarious explanation of the authority.
Stupidity has no borders.Try saying it like this: Głupota nie zna granic. (Satisfying eh?)
PS. Fortunately Civil Society is alive and well in Poland today. (Now I know why it was so important that Wall came down. And while we are at it, we can remember too where it all started, in an August day in 1980 in a shipyard in Gdańsk.)
