Good Idea - Except When the Wind Blows

Posted in

If you've ventured from the Courthouse parking lot to the Courthouse lately you may have noticed the portable crosswalk sign on Burkitt Street seen here. It does a great job - in the erect position - however the slightest breeze seems to knock it over. I set it up on my way to and again on my way back from the Courthouse on Thursday afternoon at 2:30 pm when Weather Underground showed the wind to be 9 mph out of the NNW. Perhaps a heavier base is in order for this "potentially" valuable asset to downtown pedestrian safety.
