[Image taken 24.9.22] St Andrewgate, York. A stashed or abandoned sign, and a sandbag. Signs left like this can become hazards or be used as tools to destroy property or as weapons. Sandbags can explode (see: #186293). The grit released is not just an eyesore but also a hazard… wheels skid on it. Today, the racks were full here (and at the other locations I saw as I moved around the city centre). When I returned to my cycle there was a distressed couple of adults - they had left panniers (bike bags) on one of their cycles and they'd been stolen. People (including me) often leave removable luggage on cycles. And who would challenge someone taking it off and walking away with it? Note the trailer. It is too long for the width of the pavement. It is therefore a trip hazard for someone with little or no sight and vulnerable to vehicle movements for example emergency vehicles or when the footstreets open to motor traffic towards the end of the day.
