I have recently been in touch with the city about an issue with what they refer to as roll over curbs, onto a sidewalk, along South Alder St. Roll over curbs were put in about 30 years ago.
These curbs are part of the entrance to mine and many other driveways along Alder St. I have to climb these so called Roll Over Curbs to get into my driveway, the problem lies with the fact that I almost have to come to a stop to enter my driveway to climb this curb to avoid doing damage to my vehicles steering, which has almost caused a few rear enders. The city says that he cannot justify doing anything about it, but if I want to fix it myself, at my own cost, that would be fine. They want me to fix a blunder that the city created approximatley 30 years ago, when they extended Alder St. after all it does not take a rocket scientist to see that this is a dangerous situation, and extremely hard on the front end of vehicles. They city feels that it cannot justify fixing a problem that occurred 30 years ago and that it has not had any complaints about in the past. I just wonder how many people out there are concerned about this safety issue?
