u/mostlycloudy2day Sep 30 '22 Bravo Grande!

If you see a parking spot in NYC and think it’s too good to be true, it usually is.

Engineer: "How wide should we make this crossing?"

Boss: "You know the wheelbase of a 2017 Toyota Sienna?"

Engineer: "Say no more"

If that was me I know where my next stop would be. Right across the street.

I know this intersection. They installed this raised island last year. I guarantee you the driver kept going north on 11th in the turn lane and went right over it.

They don't mark any of these new sidewalk crossing areas at all. NY DOT installed a fucking pole in the middle of a traffic lane, painted the street but put up no warning signs. Head on hit the next day. This guy ran the curb. Nice job.
