Here is the view if I turn 180 degrees from yesterday's image. You can see the ramp at the sidewalk/street interface. There's another storm drain at the corner. Then there's a power pole in the sidewalk, not off it in the grass. Then the Bus stop bench. It's nice that it has a roof. I have sweltered on this bench many times and been thankful for the shade. BUT, it's in the middle of the sidewalk. They even had to remove the sod and pour concrete out to the curb to continue the paved surface past the obstruction. The city has zoning rules about parking lot set backs on major thoroughfares and there is a lot to the right. There has to be 6 feet of turf back from the sidewalk to hedge selected from a small list of approved plants and then you can begin your parking lot. Note: Nothing is ever going to be approved to go into that turf setback. NOT EVEN a bus bench! The city could have done eminent domain to the grass behind where the bench is now, on the 30 sq ft needed for the Structure and left the sidewalk undisturbed. Not!
When I come to these impediments and imcyclements(?) I do have to slow to the point where I need to touch down a foot to hobble around the dang thing. There are about 4 more on this road, mostly a few miles to the rear in the direction of the photo from yesterday, two on this side and two on the other. (Note: there are about fifty marked bus stops but only those few are covered ones. I am fortunate that one is nearby for me to use)
Here's a compliment to Florida Drivers: The lights are yellow and most cars show that they're beginning to brake rather than try to run the light. Maybe it has to do with that particular intersection has red light runner cameras to capture tag numbers for a few hundred dollar fine! I think that white pole to the far left of the intersection is the camera pole for the cars crossing the field from left to right on that cross street. I do know that pole is planted one foot out into the sidewalk.
