While discussing bike lane proposals in June of 2018,
we received feedback that some people behave poorly while cycling.
While that's true, the far
greater danger people walking face is their continual disregard
by people driving.
So we figured documenting such conditions would be useful.
Here are just some of the cars we found parked on Sleepy Hollow's sidewalks.
A common response is "you can just walk around."
While some people can, some can't.
Great communities ensure access for everybody.
It's not the person's disability that is the major barrier in many
cases, but the disability forced upon them due to poor design of society
around them. --@Bairnybridge
And while people are walking around a car on the sidewalk,
they are placed in danger.
They can be hit by cars in the street.
They can be backed over by the person driving the parked car --
paritcularly so for kids, who are too small to be seen out of rear windows.
