Imagine a driver making the final lap in a qualifying attempt for the Indianapolis 500. The racing team has worked hard for this moment, spending hours fine-tuning the engine, running countless miles in practice and making sure they’ve seized every opportunity to prepare for victory.
Everyone’s cheering and applauding as the driver heads down the final stretch. At this point, there’s just one thing for that driver to do: keep the pedal pushed to the floor and cross the finish line at full speed.
In a way, that’s a good description of the situation we face in the effort to bring improved mass transit to central Indiana. With a bill being considered in the Indiana General Assembly, we’ve reached a milestone, but we can’t slow down — on the contrary: now is the time to go full throttle.
