This time, a city owned fence stopped them - kind of.
I was working at home and heard nothing. While I don't really notice the traffic noise, I tend to hear the lack of traffic. So after a bit, even with emergency vehicles (which are a common occurrence) it wasn't until I didn't hear cars moving I figured something was up. ...and it was.
I'm not sure how she made it to where she did. It wasn't across the normal path that the other vehicles have taken into our yard.
As you can see, the "drive" (and I do use that term loosely) did major damage to the rear axle. Oh, and the front of the car. They also took out portion of the fence. It's not our fence per se, but belongs and its "maintained" by the city. I put that in quotes because it was clearly on its last legs anyways.
But those green poles I pointed out. The city started installing those to erect a new fence. I suppose we should be grateful this lady didn't take down or hit the new fence. I say that because, it would make it look like the old one immediately and they'd still take another 20 years to replace it.
I went out hours later expecting to see car parts there - and they probably are, but right now they are overshadowed by large fence pieces. No one is going to remove those. I guess it will be up to us. Blerg!
18 EMS / Fire / Cops and only one - ONE! - was cute. See the guy dead center. Enlarge the pic if you must.
Well, we'll see how long before the next yard accident. Amazingly no one was injured. And I don't mean the drive because I don't care about them. But you should have seen the people on the sidewalk trying to make it up or down the hill and blocked. Like the lady with the double stroller. Can you imagine if she was a few minutes later? There's be three bodies in our ground cover!
