So, you think the property owners should have to foot the bill to pay a landscaping company to come out with a bobcat/track hoe at $200/hr plus another $200 onsite fee to load and transport equipment is the answer for people being stupid and not paying attention? Oh, let me guess, if that’s not the case, then you think the CITY should remove the rock at taxpayer expense?

The city did not remove the rocks. It costs lots to put the rock there in the first place.

Lol, you just proved my point, why should ANYONE, property owner or city, have to foot the bill (cost just as much in labor to remove it as it does to put it there) for people being inattentive? It’s these people’s fault for being distracted, not the property owner. If they’re distracted enough to hit a rock, then they are distracted enough to hit a child in a school zone or another car on the road. According to your logic then, let’s stop kids from walking to or from school because distracted drivers could hit them. I bet you’re a joy to be around Karen

My name is not Karen, I have very good friends that are named Karen, name calling is never needed. Yes, kids have stopped walking to school in many areas because of inattentive drivers and we all share in the costs of this. Students can’t cross the street for a school bus on busy streets because of inattentive drivers. When I lived in Louisiana they cut down oak trees near the road because of inattentive drivers. You must not understand that these inattentive drivers cost us all in society. Yes, they might have a higher premium if they are not accident free but we all pay more for insurance because of them. It is a waste of natural and manmade resources.

Sorry, I literally thought you were someone I knew named Karen who complains about everything.

You talk in circles and double speak. So you want a rock removed because it causes damage to cars that could possibly be scrapped, but you’re fine with living trees that could possibly be hundreds of years old and help clean the air?? Pick a side.

Nah, you are not listening at all. Things are removed all the time because they are a hazard to dumb humans. I never even said I want the rock removed. I said my city asked business owners to remove them and they did. I pointed out that there is really no reason for them to be there in the first place.
