Hi folks!

This Neighborland post (ahead of it's time as it was) was the inspiration behind Crescent Cart - our local Grocery Delivery Service available to residents of the greater New Orleans Area (and beyond).

Please check us out: www.crescentcart.com/

Your feedback & criticism are welcome (and encouraged) - We're new, (but growing!) and would LOVE to hear what you think! Without customers - there is no Crescent Cart; We NEVER forget this - ya'll are #1.

Since day 1 we've strived to offer you: the most competitive pricing / fastest delivery options available / absolute easiest ordering process / and a number of other features that no other online grocery delivery services offer here in NOLA.

We are JUST getting started and have exciting plans to expand set for this year (soon you'll be able to shop for products just like you would from the industry leading grocery & homegoods delivery apps like Instacart and Google Express)!

P.s. Why not give us a try? Your first delivery is FREE!

It was phenomenal chatting with you Christian! Thank you so much for that opportunity! It's remarkable how much you understand about user experience design!! As you know, we are launching the third iteration of our business very soon- which will include all of the features that you want and more!!

You think very differently from most folks- and you won't accept 2nd rate. You're certainly a changemaker in the city of New Orleans!

Yup. What a shame. I know 10 people ( just on my street) that would use a service just like this.

Corinne Zimmerman, a New Orleans resident who lives by the 17th Street Canal breach site, called me last week. She was one of 125,000 residents and businesses on the east bank of greater New Orleans who had just received a check in the mail.

Ms. Zimmerman - whose husband drowned 12 years ago when the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina - wanted to know why she was receiving a check for $400. Did this mean that the Orleans Levee Board was admitting they were responsible?

Katrina settlement checks don't give flood victims much comfort: Opinion

The $20 million awarded is a pittance compared to the claimed damages due to the corps' levee building mistakes.

Don't appear to be constitutional based on precedents in other states.

Seems unfair to me that if you are at the point of no return approaching a yellow light, you are fined for speeding up to pass through and you are fined for not speeding up and passing through if it turns red.

Additionally, the cameras are apparently owned and operated by a private company based out of state.

"Meanwhile, the Jefferson Parish Council voted in January to suspend its traffic cameras after discovering that the contractor running the system, Redflex Traffic Systems of Phoenix, Ariz., intended to direct a share of its revenue to lobbyist Bryan Wagner, a former New Orleans councilman. The New Orleans system, begun long after Wagner left office, is run by a different company" - nola.com

I agree---the traffic cameras seem to take a way a certain amount of drivers discretion in certain circumstances when it is actually safer to proceed through a yellow light as it is turning red, particularly in this city where there are fewer turning lanes and a usually a large neutral ground cross.

On the other hand, I too would feel a little less agitated by the big brother-esque cameras if I knew the money was being funneled more directly--and transparently-- into the city through a non-profit, or charity.

"A federal court of appeals has ruled that New Orleans’ automated traffic enforcement system ordinance is constitutional (see Bevis v. City of New Orleans). In doing so, the Court found the city’s interest in reducing traffic crashes outweighs the private interests of avoiding a fine."

Via the American Traffic Solutions (ATS) website:

ATS is a Scottsdale, AZ based company who contracts with American cities, like New Orleans, to manage traffic photo enforcement.

The only problem is I keep getting rear ended to stop before light changes so I won't get a ticket. Jefferson parish had more accidents due to lights! It is also violation of our rights! www.foxnews.com/us/2016/03/20/...

“One wouldn’t want cameras to just be a revenue generator.”

New Orleans is installing more traffic cameras, but we don’t know if they make our streets safer

When the mayor announced a major expansion of the city's traffic cameras, he said safety was the reason. But the city hasn’t studied whether the existing cameras have reduced wrecks. Studies around the country aren't conclusive.
