Air Hose Across City Sidewalk ...


Most of my jobs ... this is a non issue ... air hose or extension cords lying across the sidewalk. On occasion, I'll have to park on the street and my cords and hoses need to cross the city sidewalk to get in the building. How do you guys limit the trip hazard in this scenario?

Re: Air Hose Across City Sidewalk ...


you need something like this, along with cones & a couple of barricades indicating a hazard.

you might also check in the city you are working in because as soon as you do something/anything in their right of way they want an encroachment permit.

everything will likely be fine until someone trips over an unmarked cord.

if so, just load all your chit in your trailer and drive it to their house....

Yeah no kidding,

we received a $400 ticket in the city of Chicago for having some bricks stacked on the sidewalk off to the side for “blocking“ the sidewalk.

It was a ridiculously wide 8 ft wide sidewalk and there was bricks stacked up on 6 inches of it. You could’ve driven a car on the sidewalk past it without hitting the bricks

Not only was the ticket $400 my dad had to go to court which is at City Hall downtown paying $30 to park and losing the majority of the day for the stupid thing as opposed to just mailing in the fine

Lesson learned
