Please Help Out By Shoveling Crosswalks
So we know it's extremely tempting to cut corners and do as fast a job as you can. This has been an extremely frustrating past couple months, and it doesn't look like an end is in sight anytime soon.
But this is a community with a lot of elderly and disabled people in it, people who can't navigate uncleared corners and whose only other option is to use their mobility devices or walk in the street.
A reader asks the community at large to remember to shovel street corners and crosswalks when you're shoveling, to keep in mind the people who don't have the same advantages as the young and able-bodied.
"When shoveling, I take 5 extra minutes to make sure streets and alleys at crosswalks are passable. I've seen too many scooters, wheelchairs, and people pushing carts down the street this winter. Having clean alley and street crossings will help them to stay out of traffic."
