|Curbs shouldn't take precendence over saving a life!|

In responding to the comment about the ICDs [curbs], here are some "What If's":
What if there is an emergency and traffic is blocked preventing the ambulance, the fire truck or a police car from getting to a scene? How do you pull to the side if there is an ICD? Are we not required by law to do just that -- pull to the side?
What if a car has an unexpected tire blow out in the middle of traffic? Where can they pull over if there is an ICD? I have personally witnessed this and because of the ICDs that car had to run over them causing more damage.
I have no problem with keeping the island looking good with green grass but I have a BIG problem when keeping the island looking good TAKES PRECEDENCE OVER POSSIBLY SAVING A LIFE!
Why not put some of the money to make those ICDs into making sure all the residential areas have proper lighting? Why not ensure that every residential area has paved roads? After all, that too is a part of keeping the island looking good.
Think about it and enough with the ICDs and the round-abouts too!
