LA’s New Crack Epidemic

Ever walk down a Los Angeles city sidewalk? It may feel like climbing the Himalayas.

Tree roots have uplifted many city sidewalks across the city, turning a quick walk around the neighborhood into a treacherous experience. According to The Los Angeles Times, the city receives about 2,500 claims a year from people who hurt themselves on these cracks. ¬†What’s the city’s solution to this problem? A three-year, $10 million survey of all of the city’s sidewalks.

Residents like Peter Griswold say that price tag is too high. He has come up with a plan of his own that involves photographs, GPS devices, and – most importantly – volunteers. Griswold is confident that his ragtag crew of sidewalk cartographers can find and report trouble spots more quickly – and cheaply – than city workers. H/T Reason TV
