    We need safer Sidewalks in Florida.

    When questioned by an ABC News Reporter about the street lamp posts in the middle of the sidewalk on Bee Ridge he said:

    "In addition to being exempted from the current ADA standards, Stublen says there are other barriers preventing the street lamps from being moved. "Right now we are right up against the edge of the right of way. We have no more room. Literally millions would be required to purchase any additional right away we would need if we were to relocated the street lamp," said Stublen.

    Look at the photo. Does it sound like Mr Stublen is telling the truth.

    Please help us in the efforts to relocate the street lamp posts which obstruct the center of the Bee Ridge Road Sidewalk by visiting Change.org and signing our Petition.
