In an older post, I mentioned the ills about off-street parking and curb cuts in an urban environment.
After this ice storm, let me add another. When walking on the sidewalk, as long as it is level, pedestrians are all right. However, the grade of a curb cut is steeper than sidewalks. I was slipping every time I walked by one yesterday. And Dallas has no shortage of slipping opportunities.
This is just another example of Dallas being unintentionally pedestrian-unfriendly.
