Slip and Fall Accidents

Thousands of Tripping Hazards Found on San Diego Sidewalks

By Ross Jurewitz on September 22, 2014

Trip and Fall AccidentsSan Diego has an estimated 5,000 miles of sidewalks. A recent sidewalk assessment has shown that there are thousands of tripping hazards in the city — at least 39,000 and counting; and the assessment doesn’t conclude until this winter.

Facing concerns over crumbling infrastructure, the San Diego City Council agreed to spend $1 million to commission 24 engineering interns, mostly from San Diego State, to assess the city’s sidewalks. Any sidewalk with a lip of at least a half an inch is considered to have a tripping hazard. So far, the interns have covered 3,100 miles of the city’s sidewalks.

John Helminski, San Diego’s deputy director of the Transportation and Storm Water Department, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he wasn’t surprised by the high incidence of sidewalk tripping hazards in the city, considering that many of the sidewalks have not been renovated or fixed since they were first installed some 75 years ago. Tree roots have caused about 10 percent of the tripping hazards on the city’s sidewalks. Read the rest »
