Seatbelts Really Work!

I hope the 2 wil be alright. Wearing seatbelts would have prevented the ejections from the vehicle and minimized their injuries. People will never learn.

It appears SOMEONE needs to clean out their car. Did they hit a dumpster?

Hay

Just a new way to injure people in CBD. Shooting is getting old.

This is in Harrisburg.

Folks, this is in Harrisburg very close to the Kroc Center. FYI -the CBD starts at 13th Street. Frog Hollow (the neighborhood, not the restaurant) is between this area and the CBD.

Signs

How about asking countyman to have "Entering CBD" at 90 degree locations from the center so we all know where CBD starts and ends.

To me, Augusta is Augusta.

Sorry alumna

I always thought Broad Street was part of Augusta.

Depends on the story..

Sometimes he says the Kroc center is in the CBD but if anything happens near it that's bad the area is not in the CBD...I agree with signage. One needs to know where the safety net for low crime is in the downtown area...

This is why this section is

This is why this section is fun to read. A debate about the location of an accident that was the fault of one or both drivers.)

Think beyond one dimension

Is all of Columbia County just like the section of Petersburg Road that the woman in Monday's drug arrest hails from? Those who live in and around West Lake and Barrington on Steven's Creek Road would argue it is not. The same goes for the difference in the East Boundary of Augusta and the residents on the hill on Walton Way. Affluent areas and less affluent areas exist everywhere, communities are multi-dimensional and cannot be judged based on an opinion of one corner of that community.

Suggestion

Lets have AC when reporting anything to state the the area they are posting about is either "Affluent Areas or Less Affluent Areas". That way nobody will be embarrassed by talking about the wrong area.

Old Timmer..Was it the Pig N

Old Timmer..Was it the Pig N Whistle that was located nearby and we could sit on our cars and watch the "Harrisburg Gang" fight with (or scare away) intruders?
