Sounds like we need to ban rental vans now.

Yep; and there is evidently an endless supply of nut jobs.

Did they mention as to whether this van driver had pants on?

They're probably too busy chewing their Tide pods or snorting condoms. We'll have to wait until recess to hear their pearls of wisdom regarding this matter.

I saw something on this. Supposedly, this nut was part of something called involuntary celibates - I have no idea, and likely don't want one......

Banning just vans won't work - they need to be high capacity vans....

You will soon see barriers along sidewalks so vehicles cant get through. Little openings now and then so people can step out.
