Standard Procedure...






I took these photos tonight as I walked home down Sligo Avenue from Piney Branch Rd. They show construction equipment left overnight in the sidewalk, along with the Road Work Ahead signs. Surely there are other options that don't include blocking the sidewalk or narrowing the passage so that people with carts, strollers, or wheelchairs can continue to get through.

Put it anywhere



Here is another example of third-party actors in Montgomery County public right-of-way being allowed to park their vehicles across the sidewalk. The truck above was actually located AT the 3rd District Police station on Sligo Avenue.

My daughter and I were headed to downtown Silver Spring for lunch, through what I beleive was a Verizon project. I took these photos on the way. We had actually crossed, mid-block to get to this side, because the work was being done on the other side.
