Letter: Unshoveled sidewalks create big challengeI personally like North Dakota’s four distinct seasons. However, winter can be a challenge, not from the temperatures but because of unshoveled sidewalks and curb cuts. Not only is it a safety concern for mailmen, delivery people and others, but to people in wheelchairs it stops us dead in our tracks. We don’t have the luxury of stepping over a snow ridge or making a short little foot trail.
The money of people who use wheelchairs is worth the same as anyone’s. So if we can’t access your business, we’re likely to do business elsewhere.
