At the risk of beating this drum once too often, what are they thinking when they make the bike lanes impassable in this way? Maybe they figure it's no big deal if someone gets hit in the traffic lane, because the emergency room is just around the corner.
If it was me, I'd check when Republic Services sends its leaf pickup truck down this block of Elm Street -- which probably is not Saturday or Sunday -- and then I'd pile the leaves in the street that morning or the night before.
I ran a similar photo of this same scene about this time a year ago. It's nice that some things never change, but then again, maybe some things should. (hh)
