Amy Hunt took this photo at St. Botolph and West Newton streets on Tuesday afternoon. Note that the roadway is well plowed - in part by piling up all that snow right at the corner, right where the handicap ramp is - the handicap ramp that Hunt, who uses a wheelchair to get around in, can no longer see, let alone use.
"When it snows, I’m inevitably stuck traveling in the streets in my wheelchair," she says.
Hunt took another photo this morning, at the intersection of Union Park and Tremont Stret in the South End, where three out of the four curb cuts were inaccessible to her:
"If the city wants zero accidents - and look at Globe, the new speed limit is 20, etc - it might want to include how it plows snow. "
She adds, "The city has been responding to my 311s but it’s every snowstorm, one intersection at a time, I’m kinda done with all the 311ing, I have work to do and a 6-year-old."
