In his blog entry "9-1-1: A User's Perspective," Brady Dale deals directly with the operations of the 911 system, and indirectly with issues of political correctness affecting low-income communities. That thread produced an interesting dialogue, which may well continue.
But I would like to focus attention on what I consider to be the most important issue that Brady dealt with: the regulation of dirt bikes themselves. The 911 operator he talked to seemed somewhat unmoved about the accident a likely drunk dirt bike rider caused: a quick Internet search found no mention of city policy against dirt bikes. What we may be dealing with is a failure of city policy itself rather than primarily a failure of the 911 system in its operations.
