Another Big Dig Safety Hazard

Today’s Boston Globe includes some wonderfully ironic writing from Andrea Estes.

Motorists driving through Big Dig tunnels will, at long last, be able to chat on their cellphones uninterrupted…

“This is something that’s long past due,” said John Walsh, the Massachusetts Democratic Party chairman, who talks nonstop during his drive from Abington to the party’s Charlestown headquarters…

State Senator Michael Morrissey, who also multitasks during his commute from Quincy to Boston, said the lack of service in the tunnels is a more serious public safety concern.

“I’m surprised more people haven’t been in accidents because they have to redial,” he said.

It’s good to know that our leaders are aware of the safety issues. But I fear that the Globe will lose Ms Estes to the Onion.
