A reader writes in:"Please tell your readers to be extra cautious out there. Since the city has stopped plowing the side streets -- don't even get me started -- Uptown has turned into a big glacier. On my way to work, I saw a very elderly man slip and fall on the ice at Leland and Kenmore. He was okay but very scared."
We've noticed a lot of pedestrians choosing to walk on the icy streets because the sidewalks haven't been shoveled. A reminder to call 311 to report incidents where the residents or businesses haven't bothered to remove the snow (which is rapidly turning into ice). With all the cars spinning out on the slippery side streets, that's the last place a pedestrian needs to be.
