At the dangerous intersection on South Riverside Avenue and Maple Street in Mayor Schmidt’s Croton, drivers are permitted to illegally park their vehicles over the sidewalk at the strip mall next to the Croton Colonial Diner. And when vehicles are parked there, passers-by are forced to move into harm’s way.
Worse, a close examination of the satellite map reveals that there is no safe alternate route for pedestrians when their right-of-way is obstructed by law-breaking drivers.
Why is it that in Croton, the laws meant to protect Crotonites are ignored by the mayor?
PS. This ain’t the first time Crotonblog has expressed its concern for public safety in this parking area. To see what we mean, read “Why Is Croton So Selectively Enforcing Its Laws, Mr. Mayor?,” published on July 8, 2007 and “The Disaster at the Intersection of Routes 9A and 129 in Croton,” from June 26, 2007.
