It is very convenient for the people who wish to ride down from the Normal on the motor, to have it wait for them until they are ready to go. But for citizens who wish to ride down in their carriages, it is not an unmitigated pleasure to find the road blockaded by said motor for five or ten minutes, as was the case after the Wednesday evening concert. It is a thing which would be tolerated only in Ypsilanti, even Ann Arbor would rebel against the monopoly of her highway by her street cars. She does not so much as permit the motor to enter the city. Could not the "tooter" be stopped either above or below the crossing, and thus avoid nnoyance to the driving population of the town? --May 9, 1895 Ypsilantian
