Paint Found!

Early dis past Sunday morning I decided to take Da Baby and Da Keiki for a little Red Wagon ride to da park and give Da Wife a couple more hours of more than well deserved shut eye.

As I approached da park, I couldn't help but notice all da color. I walked da entire park twice to confirm changes of which I blogged about weeks ago in "Can You Figgah It Out". At dat time, there was a perplexing sight of an ordinary curb but it was painted a pretty bright blue and couldn't figgah out how come only a SINGLE curb? Ran out of paint? No mo' money? Spilled paint and tried to make it pretty?

Da WWD! Hui are common sense people - well, most of us :razz: - and could pretty much conclude dat it was to indicate handicap access at da very least.

Wat about da blind - visually impaired for all you politically crap... um, correct people? How come no mo' da shiatsu kine bumps scattered across da ramp too then? No need be painted yellow cause c'mon, they no can see 'em but how come da handicapped (wheeled, cane and oddah assisted means) gotta be "shown" da slanted curb but da blind just gotta figgah it out for themselves?

Wassup Wit Dat!

Naturally wen there's one WWD!, there are oddahs and I got anoddah "perplexing" mo'olelo dat came out of dis for latah and da sad part? It's da same park.... :roll:

Hea are da pics of all da curbs around da park now dat they found da paint bucket....... well, almost.... you'll see.





Pretty yeah? :razz:



Anybody know Wassup Wit Dat! in dis pic? Go guess 'em go.

    ... hey Braddah Lance ... wow, was that fountain painted brown ... or is that from all the dirt??? ... anyway, kinda wondering that it's painted in pink too ... did a girl do that vandalizing??? ...

    ... and yeah, the blue stop sign ... I think it's for non-standard or non-official use ... for private properties and stuff ... haha, you can run that stop sign and not get a ticket ...

    ... Have a Good One Everyone!!! ...

    Not sure which engineering standard (e.g., FHWA or AASHTO or MUTCD) but white curb is for passenger loading and unloading. Blue curb or blue parking strips is typical for American with Disability Act (AD) accessible ramps, curb cuts or parking spaces. The sidewalk ramp is also suppose to have the yellow surface with the bumps so you can feel the ramp location. I think the C&C had previously installed a plastic type mat anchored into the concrete, but I noticed they have been removing them because of damage or maintenance problems. Sooner or later the C&C will have to replace or do something make a tactile surface.

    Windward Mall has da same kine blue stop signs for stops within da parking lot. I think rayboyjr is right.
