Here's the tedious thing about city laws. They were made in a city. Same with the streets.
Did you know that city streets have to be up to city code? That means they have to be made under law, under regulations, by certified professionals,
and the records kept down at a city hall or other municipal place? These rules go up the government food chain all the way up to the top of federal
regulatory groups, including the national security groups that may interpret this aberration of code as preparation for a plot to interrupt the
ordinary flow of government. Yeah, national security goes nuts over these surprises so don't give them any.
In essence, what you have at it's simplest level is a piece of street graffiti. At it's most complex, this could be a setup for acts of fraud,
including insurance fraud; and if they want to go there, and frequently they do these days, the government could accuse this of being pre-staging for
terrorism. Oh yeah, Jose bin Hummus, a new convert, could be telling his new group that when the executive limo crosses those lines to send the
exploding wheelchair person across. That scenario has been used in evil before, if only on a smaller scale.
I can guess at first glance that the crosswalk was not perpendicular to the street, which may make it out of code. EDIT: hold on, it's not that
corner mess, it's the big empty one. Still, it's not painted right, and it's not painted better. Oh and I just noticed he's on a highway. See,
look, even after a minute poring over things, if I were a pedestrian I'd be confused wondering what idiots painted these lines because it's still not
up to code.
It may be painted with the wrong kind of paint for the roads in the neighborhood. It wasn't through any sort of real road crew work, which might
upset a local union. The hard part is because it is slanted, even though it is there to lead the cross-walkers astray, if a driver were to turn that
corner it would be out of their anticipated field of vision for street lines, and still they would miss it and potentially injure a pedestrian.
For the not yet informed, here is how you get street lines on a street in your neighborhood: you petition your local government for it. You write it
out and get some supporters and ask them at one of their meetings. If they say no, do it again, and again, as long as you have to to get the laws in
your neighborhood interests. You can stick in in the paper.
Otherwise, the officials will get miffed at this defiance to authority and they will let you know it. The hardest thing is that if they don't do it,
copycats come around, and all hell can break loose with unofficial lines on the road.
So it's not legal for anybody except through the proper channels. I thought everybody already knew how not to be stupid in the
