We opened the show this afternoon talking about this eight year old student who is sent ADHD also diagnosed with PT EST you know I really didn't know that you could have PT EST and she can't. At the age of eight years old he was handcuffed in a Kentucky grammar school because they called in the authorities which is school protocol when a child is misbehaving and and and truly. Hi to a certain degree. To make sure that the child is not injure themselves or injure anybody else. And when I read the new story that said the the police. Handcuffed this disabled child. Well I guess in some cases ADHD. Might be a disability. But it alike cases it would not. And it seems like the word. Disables was designed to enhance the story this disabled can't handcuffed. The kid is ADHD. And I'm not downplaying that. And all because all these disorders are or are serious and then when this topic comes up and I'm meant mention OCD I I get a lot of comments and I'm getting more. I text about that we're gonna do a show about it him. A very soon also we were talking about to actress and comedian Amy Schumer who is just supporting legislation. That woods I'd give incentives to states to share information for the federal database. It would also create penalties if states did not and this guy John how's it issued in Lafayette. Should Everett got begun. Looking back. But within dispute bureaucracy that we have government doesn't always communicate. With different branches in different agencies don't always communicate with each other. So this is a designed to maybe help that out although I think we've already got. Laws on the books that should require government employees to communicate with different. Agencies and they don't necessarily do that anyway the blood that I wrote him two days is about that it's on our website WW dot com. It has happened again a bicycle has hit this time killed by a dump truck near canal and brought. Here's our party general opinion poll this hour who presents a greater danger. Psychoanalyst a motorist with talked about this before. And this will continue to be a topic of discussion. Especially its New Orleans becomes more of a bike friendly city. And we're to an amazing job and we've had to come from nothing to being more of a bike friendly city. But not everybody as a motorist understands. How to treat bi planes and how to treat cyclist. So I don't think there's anything wrong with talking about this every time we have an opportunity because you NI whether we're cyclist. Or motorist. We brought into this almost every day of our lives. If you're pedestrian. I deal as a pedestrian idea was motors and the cyclist as well so which is the greater danger. The cyclist. With a motorist.

The greater new military and looking forward to that on Thursday we'll talk about schools and we'll talk about education. This is the Scotia where politics and pop culture Beecher opinions now in the afternoon on WWL. So who creates the bigger problem on the roads is at the cycles to the motorist. Mean I've seen both and I'm sure you have as well. One of the reasons that I think we really should require. That. People take a driver's test it at least a written test every time they get their driver's license renewed. Is because there are so many new rules in effect mean every year almost the legislature's passing new laws about traffic. And we've got by complaints. That have been paid on our streets. But not everybody knows how to treat. So where do you see the biggest threat coming from the motors for the cyclist. If you're cyclist. What are the faults of cycle it's because I know you don't agree with all cyclists. Because there are some cycles to a very arrogant. Some cyclist do you have this attitude that I'm riding my bike I'm doing something to save the environment I'm better than you. There is that attitude. Did they are motorist who just have total disregard for for cyclist. Now if you're a motorist and here in the right. Like this I'd like this truck driver. Hitting us this person yesterday. The truck driver may have been totally right. But it still has an impact on you if you hit and kill somebody. Or you hit any interest of party. Parents have a responsibility to teach their kids what to do with their bikes and how to ride and safely and properly. But when you talk about the CBD the French Quarter when you talk about city park and on and in park in saint Charles or just all over the North Shore the West Bank everywhere. Bikes are everywhere now. And that's a good thing. It is good that New Orleans is becoming more of a bike friendly city. But yesterday afternoon about 1 o'clock this at 52 year old male on a bicycle. Was hit and killed by a dump truck. And dump truck driver 34 year old male. One is I think he was taken to the DW I checkpoint. As far as I known there was no I haven't heard maybe you know more about this and I do but I have not heard that there was any. I charges filed. But sadly the cycle was died at the scene in the truck driver did not receive any injuries so what do you think creates the bigger the bigger threat on the road. The cycle is what problems do you have a cyclist if you're motorist. And what problems do you have with motorists. If you're cyclist you know maybe there's one little thing that you can say this afternoon. There will help change somebody's attitude when it comes to this. Co existence that we must have on the routes. Motorists aren't going anywhere. There's only going to be more and more cyclist. So we kind of have to learn to get a wall. If you wanna join us with your thoughts in your comments are number is 2601870. Every coach final four. 2601870. A text number 87878. As coach and we'll be back on dividend you now.

And cause and stop shall we get the club behind him it'd be a dead. And the bicycles stroll in for a well under recruited to note here he could certainly want to be damaged or do you know but had a bite to register he picked himself up call. Copy I appreciate your colleagues so the question is who is there a greater danger on the roses at the cycle or should the motorist in what is it that you would like to tell motorists. If your cyclist. And if your. A psychoanalyst what he wanna tell motorists. Here's a Texas says says some cyclists do break the laws but I'd rather cut them some slack than possibly kill then everyone needs to be more careful. And more patients from Metairie and Euro on WW well. I. Think that track. That. Arm the less I like it. Trot but. Yes I'm. Dot. Com. Tell. Our chemistry. Because on. Caught a one street normally look at the track. Correct it or. The ways he again. And they pay she role. And don't don't. Yeah not. Now summer. And I'll worry that somebody can. Our right as a pedestrian downtown I've learned to look both ways even if it's a one way street and quite finish because I have almost been hit by. Cycle list going the wrong way on a one way street you're supposed to go with the traffic period. Right that not techie topic that petered out at. But I think it's great that more people cycle. It is in New Orleans is becoming more of cycling friendly city which is great but we just also need to increase the awareness about this relationship that we need to have on a broad and I'm going to call fatalistic. From New Orleans might cure on the Scotia. A British school are. OnStar but not going to be any old or older you are school in the morning. I appreciate that might. It wasn't that many years ago you know. A ought mumble true the government. Oh well liked it out and bite. Because a little mobile wing you know like for you Freddie. And what Peter what I couldn't. A failure imaging polo all. Black op when I do. Top line and lower risk. All of Mallory. How do you wanna put it they all get.

Shlomo our crew assault. That would be awesome. But I'm okay what looked at that screwed outlaw it shell. And not cheap popped a great war. All right Mike can you stay on your bike and you keep exercising. So is is there a negative attitude with cyclist or is the negative attitude more predominant with. The motorist on the road. When your motors are cyclists you deal with this almost every day or maybe even a pedestrian like myself manipulative as a motor sometimes. I don't have a bike to buy type deal with it is a pedestrian and as a motorist so who creates the bigger danger on the road and and what needs to be done. What is it that she would like to tell. Motorists. About cyclist. What is it that you like to tell cyclist about motorist. If you wanna join us with your comment or number is 260 when he seventy. Because 5042601870.
