Man Hole Covers

Common pitfalls on the road home. I was rolling along on my motorchair (from this day forward, the 3 wheel motorcycle shall no longer be referred to as the 3 wheel motorcycle, but as the MOTORCHAIR) and writing blogs in my head. Except, the blogs sounded more like complainy, whiney rants, so I didn’t actually write them.

But I finally took some pictures of something I have mentioned a few times. The MANHOLE covers. Well, sort of covers. These 3 are all from ONE road, within a 1 block distance of our house. I have seen more then 10 accidents as a direct result of this covers. Usually involving people on electric bikes...

This is a fair representation of most of the roads around here, and a good explanation for why, no matter HOW bored I am, or HOW long of a trip we are doing on the motorchair, I NEVER listen to music on headphones, and I stay alert. I don’t want to miss any of these death traps!

This is also why all the rich-ish sort of folks drive SUVS!!!!

this is the ideal condition of a cover!

This one was new 1 month ago... I think it is on the way out!
