Trailer Hitch Blocking Sidewalk
Have you ever scraped your leg on a trailer hitch of a vehicle parked over a sidewalk? It hurts!

Wouldn't it be nice if drivers of vehicles with long overhangs on the front or rear parked so as not to encroach on the sidewalk? This vehicle was parked in the east parking lot of the courthouse last week.

Sure, I saw it and avoided it. Imagine a person in a wheelchair or wearing dark glasses and using a cane? Would an unsighted person take a nasty spill? Who would he sue for injuries? Just the truck owner? Or would he also sue the County?

It was nice that the driver didn't back all the way until the rear tires hit the sidewalk. But removing the trailer hitch and parking not quite so far back would have been even better.
