Uptown Polka Dot Mystery May Be Solved

New, 15 comments

Who knew polka dots could cause such strong feelings? Apparently, the "street art" at General Pershing and Constance Streets Uptown is a "traffic calming solution, meant to slow drivers down through neighborhoods and school zones. It was city-approved and led by [Ecole school]," a reader wrote. Calls to Ecole were not returned, so in the meantime, do check out the comments which range from, "It's not art, and it isn't calming. I love polka dots but it's obnoxious," to "Calm down people, it's just polka dots." [CurbedWire]
