L.A. to Fix Sidewalks - Not This Century
A Los Angeles Daily News editorial charges that for the past 20 years the Los Angeles City Council has largely ignored the problem of L.A.'s crumbling sidewalks. As a consequence, L.A. taxpayers have had to pay off numerous sidewalk accident victims accounting for millions of dollars. Last year's total was $2.7 million. The Council's "solution" is to fix 46.5 miles of sidewalk this year--46.5 miles of L.A.'s 10,000 miles of pavement. The council ridiculously plans to employ six officials to walk every foot of the city's sidewalks to assess the damage.
