In this case, the fence around the bridge which is right beside our apartment building. Put up to keep people from under and on the bridge.
Because, you see, the City hasn't bothered to maintain the bridge. It it could fall down. It is seriously rusting out in many spots. I know; I've been down there and taken pictures. Surprising what happens when you can't afford a coat of paint once in a while.
So now, we can't walk on it, or drive on it. Lest it come crashing down beneath our feet or tires.
And we can't walk under it, either; we don't want it upon your head and shoulders.
But if you've got a boat, you're welcome to travel under the dangerous bridge any time.
Peculiar Political BehaviourBear makes no claim to being the brightest beast in the bush. But I cannot understand how a bridge is safe for boaters to go under, but not for ordinary taxpayers to walk under. I mean, really! I am frankly offended by this kind of inequality, this basic unfairness, this faux pas. It may be legal, but I don't see it as being ethical at all.
Is this a case of laws for some people, and other laws for different people? Can we justify this reasonably in our contemporary society?
