Thought of the Day - Poor Design

I'm in OH and apparently they get a lot of snow here. However, I managed to find the 55 degree winter day (followed by a night full of monsoon rains and howling winds).

The melted snow exposed a poorly designed sidewalk (well, probably a 1/2 mile of sidewalk). The sidewalk is narrower than the snow removal equipment used upon it. There are damaged strips on both sides of the sidewalk from the plow that is being used. This will lead to a project to replace these two strips each spring.

and again next year..

and the year again...

Since it would not make sense to tear out and rebuild the sidewalk I would recommend that the persons doing maintenance look at getting some narrower snow removal equipment.

But what do I know?
