Taxpayers paid for this school. Unfortunately, they weren't consulted on safety issues or design (human safety, not the safety of precious vehicles). Public space is exactly that - public. Available to be enjoyed and photographed by whomever would like to. You should be glad that an independent media source cares enough about the safety of children at this school to do a piece on it. Over the past 20 years Hamilton has averaged 26 car deaths PER YEAR. It's horrendous designs like this one that lead to human beings being sacrificed for the sake of our SUV's and shortening our walk to the front door by 13 steps. As a student or staff member of this school perhaps you'll take up these serious safety issues with the powers that be.
