Corner puddles

floodedIf you walk, you see them. The standing water at the corners, sometimes only after heavy rains but more-often-than-not lingering for days. These are drainage fails, and they make crossing streets difficult for pedestrians (especially those pushing strollers), and virtually impossible for those in wheelchairs. If you drive, you don’t see it. The way you desecrate people when you speed through corner puddles, telling those on the sidewalk they don’t matter. You don’t even realize this.
