I'm betting in Chicago it just gives them a better aiming point.

I wonder how much Federal Stimulus $$$ they got for this program....:whistling:...This HAS to be up there with those wonderful "Gov-ment" projects like, "Midnight Ball" and the "Don't Dis your Sis" program back in NYC in the mid 80's.......:rofl:

They are used all the time around here.

The flags are regularly replaced . . . :)

What is the point difference between hitting pedestrians with a flag or without a flag?

Maybe they give extra points for hitting someone with a flag?

We have that here too. I have no idea how often they are replaced.

The politicians who thought this up should be made to walk around with those flags stapled to his head for the next 2 years.

Death Race 2000. Bonus points for getting the flags.

Some Emmanuel/ Daley/ Obama politically connected relative or donor will have a job for life as the "Flag Coordinator", screwing taxpayers out of 6 digits a year.

I'm willing to bet that the manufacturer/import of the flags is politically connected to key city leaders. I'm sure that the city pays thru the nose for each flag made.

Y'all are missing a huge opportunity.

I'm going to market my own flags.

I will make different color flags so people don't get offended if their favorite color is not represented or that we prefer one color over another in violation of their 1st amendment rights. GENIUS!

If morons in cars can't see a $1,400 lightbar or hear a 100 watt siren on a police car [much less an ambulance or a fire truck], what cretin thinking waving a square plastic flag is going to make a difference?

See now, you're trying to use logic again. You can't do that with the nanny state politicians trying to justify pet projects and go nowhere schemes.
