Obstructions

Overview

Obstructions of the sidewalk can be anything that restricts the normal flow of pedestrian traffic along the sidewalk. Most commonly, obstructions take the form of overgrown trees or bushes, but could include anything placed on or near the sidewalk which causes difficulty for pedestrians to travel the sidewalk. While most pedestrians can often go around obstructions, keep in mind that elderly or disabled pedestrians may not have the ability to negotiate an obstructed sidewalk and are therefore might be denied access to the sidewalk altogether. 

It is the responsibility of all homeowners or occupants to ensure that the sidewalk is safe and passable for all.
