I am quite alarmed at the men and women that are plowing the streets of Spokane. While they are doing an exceptional job of clearing the streets for motorists, I’m wondering how they expect the hundreds of thousands of pedestrians that walk our streets every day to cross intersections or simply walk where there is supposed to be a sidewalk, instead, are piled with plowed snow.
A lot of times, the pedestrian has to walk along the streets where they may or may not get hit by passing vehicles. I’m not sure what if anything can be done but it’s just nerve-racking trying to walk most of these streets.
I do understand that vehicles on roadways take priority so that our fair city runs as efficiently as possible, but at the same time all those pedestrians are left alone to try and get where they’re going through all the piles of plowed snow. I just don’t see any consideration being made for pedestrians.
