Downtown Burnside sidewalk blockage . This is an issue

Due to a commercial refrigeration unit (wtf???) and other general debris, junk and such associated with transient activity, a busy sidewalk is entirely blocked. Consequently, pedestrians, as you can see, are walking in the bike lane, which can then lead into bicycle to detour into the road upon seeing pedestrians, thus increasing the chance of bike vs automobile incidents, especially when they detour abruptly or only for a short distance.

The failure of city to abate sidewalk vagrancy is a threat to public safety.
