Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

A small glimpse into vehicles of the very near future
A few years ago the Montgomery County Planning Commission was predicting gridlock of the entire county. Japan now has the largest traffic jams and is also the farthest ahead in developing technology to deal with it. Europe is not far behind Japan. By 2050 China and India will have 1.1 Billion cars; more than all the cars on the road right now. Gridlock is becoming a worldwide phenomenon.
Some people in Coatesville and probably in a lot of other localities only look back and seem to feel things will always be the same. That’s an extremely unpractical assumption. This video is an interesting glimpse into about the next 10 years of traffic and what we might be driving.
The most effective way to move large numbers of people is public transit. But until something better is devised many people will need to rely on single occupant vehicles to get to public transit.
Discussions about transportation are significant for Coatesville residents because in the near future the most desirable neighborhoods in Chester County will be near to railroad stations. And Coatesville is ideally positioned to take advantage of commuter and interstate rail transportation.
This video is about one technology to deal with traffic called “narrow track” vehicles. It is a convergence of motorcycle and automobile technology.
