Streets are dangerous

by Vtowne , 20 days ago

Ok, I’m senior and disabled, our streets and sidewalks are traps. Walking with a walker, or riding a wheelchair, bumps and angles and drops and rises until your teeth rattle.

I have fallen next to the Columbia Center in the evening and people didn’t stop to help. I’ve had my walker collapse walking down the sidewalk due to the roughness of the surface. the wheelchair jerked and tilted crossing a railroad crossing not far from city hall.

others at the senior center have commented on the rough sidewalks.

Another complaint isn’t the lack of handicap parking around the center With the number attending activities there. More handicap parking is needed where there are many elders and at services that serve the elderly and the disabled.
