Pittsburgh's public spaces are not kept in repair. The mayor recently addressed the accessibility of the Downtown areas for both bicycles and for people with disabilities, which I think is fantastic, but there are problems that people who use assistive devices face that are not so obvious.
This is taken of a typical walk from very close to my house up to the bus stop so I could get to a medical appointment. There is some swearing at the end after I first get cut off by some jagoff in an SUV and then in the adrenaline-fueled shock that came from nearly flipping over on a sidewalk edge.
Video is vertical because there wasn't a good way to attach my phone to my walker the other way around. I sound nasal because it was less than 20° out.
