Things that chafe my ass - anal local government edition  
Quiz time! What would you say is more dangerous to the public?

A. Unsalted roads that are cruddy enough to slow traffic down significantly.
B. Two inches of unshoveled snow on my sidewalk.

And can we guess what State College Borough seems to concern themselves with more? After a crappy drive home today, I found a nice little note warning me about my uncleared sidewalk, which royally cheesed me off. I know damn well there wasn't much at all on said sidewalk yesterday and the roads were getting nasty this afternoon. If they have the time and resources necessary to drive all around town and examine every single privately owned sidewalk to such a degree, why the hell do they seem incapable of a more productive wintertime safety endeavor such as observing the conditions of major roads so they can send salt trucks around BEFORE the roads turn to shit? It's not like there are that many major roads within the borough. All it would take is one person driving around for maybe an hour tops if the traffic is bad. Ya know, perhaps it would behoove me to write about this (in a much more polite fashion, of course) to someone who actually makes policy around here. I just had to bitch about it here because I'm cranky now. =P

You'd think they'd be more worried here about the lack of sidewalk (thanks to the plows chewing up half of it two years ago) and the stump that kids on their way home from school just HAVE to climb and jump from... morons. At least no one's complained to us. Yet.
