Somerville Speakup Line: Compromising Pedestrian Safety

Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,

I cannot understand what sense it makes to purchase these portable cross walk signs and place them in the middle of narrow streets throughout the city. I priced them on the web and they range in cost of 200.00 upwards to 350.00 each.

Everywhere you travel in the city they are getting run over by cars and trucks. They are left mangled in crosswalks, along up-ramps, on sidewalks and in the street creating a hazard for seniors, persons with disabilities, children and bicyclists.

Is there anyone with some common sense in city that see these signs are a waste of money and pose a greater threat to people.

A city with lots of waste
