This damaged light pole has been lying on the corner of Biscayne Blvd and NE 62nd Street for almost two weeks. Part of the pole is actually in the street; there is glass everywhere, and electrical wires are exposed. Pedestrians have a difficult time walking around the pole as it is lying in the middle of the sidewalk.  Disabled persons in a wheelchair are screwed; they simply cannot get around the pole safely. There should be a simple workflow within the city; when there is an accident a cleanup should follow. Debris from an accident should not take almost two weeks to cleanup.

FYI:  This accident occurred on an FDOT designed road.  Biscayne Blvd. should have a design speed of 30mph, not 45+mph. As long as FDOT continues to design roads with the sole purpose of moving cars faster, Florida will continue to hold the #1 spot for most pedestrian and cyclist fatalities in the country.
