Default Times Square?

What's up with the car that knocked down pedestrians?

clearly we need to have "car free" zones (like sidewalks?) and impose stringent licensing requirements to own and operate a car.

just like gun laws keep us all safe.

Now they said 1 dead and 13 to 20 injured....keeps changing.....this station did not say ex Navy and that they think it was an 'accident" not terror related.....either way a shame .

A former U.S. Navy sailor slammed his car into pedestrians in New York City's packed Times Square on Thursday, killing an 18-year-old woman and wounding 22 people, and authorities said there was no indication it was an act of terrorism.

Witnesses said the motorist mounted the sidewalk in a burgundy Honda sedan and sped along more than three city blocks, knocking people over before the car hit a pole and came to rest at 45th Street and Broadway in Midtown Manhattan.

Police who took the driver into custody identified him as Richard Rojas, 26, of the New York City borough of the Bronx. They said he had been arrested twice for drunken driving in 2008 and 2015, and once earlier this month for menacing.

Having been there numerous times, that had to be wild to witness.
Another mental case roaming the streets...

They need to lock this piece of shit in a room with the families of the people he hurt, and the girl he killed. I'm sick and tired of these sick ****s in society hurting other people because their own lives suck.

Do us all a favor and just go off yourself, don't hurt anyone else in the process.
