New Bedford to Install High Heel Crossing Lanes

by

By Butch Inskalop

New Bedford mayor Jon Mitchell ordered city workers to begin work on constructing ‘High Heel Crossing Lanes’ on the city’s historic and quaint cobblestoned streets. After receiving dozens complaints from area women, to include celebrity Kim Kardashian, the mayor went right to work with city planners.

“Because we are ahead of schedule, I’ve pulled resources from the New Bedford/Fairhaven bridge,” he said in a telephone interview yesterday. “It will delay the completion of the bridge by a few more weeks, but it has to be done. We are risking potential law suits from sprained ankles or damaged heels. Some of these shoes are very expensive.”

The special crossing lanes will be placed at locations on all the streets so that high heel wearers need not cross at corners. Signage will be posted at all crossings.

    This is absolutely ridiculous – Mayor Mitchell this must be getting done for your wife. How dare you divert monies from the Fairhaven/New Bedford bridge for such a ridiculous project. Are you sitting on your brains.

    First of all, I am a woman. And I believe that these dumb woman who would wear high heel shoes in our historic downtown should cross at these corners that have the little cross areas. If people with walkers and canes have to cross on the little strips at the corners why should women get special privileges and get their own walkways in the middle of the streets. why RUIN our historic cobblestones for these stupid women. These cobblestones have been there or since this city has started. why should they now change for these moronic women who obviously can’t walk with heels on. And all because of his tramp Kim Kardashian?????

    I have worked downtown New Bedford for 28 years and wear 4″ heels. When I walk on the cobblestones, I am careful and will walk more on my toes. I cannot believe money is being spent for this. How about feeding the poor homeless people of New Bedford or filling up the soup kitchens with food. If Kim Kardashian can’t walk in heels, then maybe she should wear sneakers!

    Dont the writers of this page have anything better to do? like I dont know. Get a girlfriend? A Life? Instead of throwing slander around at the city of new bedford. Granted we’re not the best place to be in. But the guy writing this crap is a royal piece of shit. Because then we get idiots like the ones around my comment who are stupid enough to believe shit like this.

    You sir deserve to be shot in the kneecaps and hung by your tongue.
