Check out this little devil I found on Vermont Avenue in Shaw.
The stump of a street sign, its raw metal edges awiting an exposed toe or unobservant walker, is primed to cause a yelp, a twist, and a fall.
How many of these booby traps litter our sidewalks? Why do they not seem to garner pothole-level attention?
A street pothole may ruin your tire, but a sidewalk booby trap will ruin your person.
Mayor Fenty, how about a little attention on transport hazards for pedestrians, walkers, runners, those who face city-left booby traps across Washington DC? Save our soles, grind down these spikes.
