Seattle limits rideshare service

Some additional suggestions

Kudos to Seattle City Council members for their tough vote capping each rideshare service at 150 drivers ["Council limits number of rideshare drivers," page one, March 18].

Now, let’s see if they have similar spine for capping the number of drug deals going on at any one time at Steinbrueck Park at 150.  Or the number of panhandlers on any given downtown block at, let’s say, 30.  Or the number of people sleeping on the park benches in Westlake Plaza or at City Hall at, let’s say, 50.

If they can’t or won’t do that, then the council should rescind its vote.
