John Wiley Price vs. The World

Forget about his alleged efforts to derail the International Inland Port of Dallas. What has he done to the traffic in front of his own house?
By Bradford Pearson |

It should come as no surprise that the federal corruption case against Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price is complicated. It likely won’t go to trial for another two years, maybe longer. The feds have amassed 6.5 terabytes of data as evidence of Price’s alleged misdeeds. His legal team has a lot of work to do.

But a D Magazine investigation has uncovered possible shenanigans that were overlooked in Price’s 11-count indictment: the devious road bumps in front of his Oak Cliff house that limit traffic on his street. Installed at the intersection of Blaylock Drive and East 5th Street, the bumps—which we hasten to point out are white—force southbound drivers to turn left, away from Price’s house, and westbound drivers to turn right, again away from the house. 

It’s so blatantly obvious that this is another of Price’s tricks that no calls were placed to Dallas City Hall to inquire about the genesis of the road bumps.

May justice now be served.
