Letter to the editor: Where’s Don Quixote when you need him?

There’s a little patch of ‘guidance concrete’ at the corner of 10th and Ford which has irritated me for quite a while.
I wrote a little poem about it:

There is some careful concrete
on the southwest
corner of 10th and Ford.
It must be there to
protect bike riders
when they’re crossing,
but in all the years I’ve passed,
only one hid behind
that 3 inch blockade.
So that can’t be it.
From what I’ve seen
it does four things:
Hinders cars making
right hand turns
from northbound Ford.
Slows buses turning right
from eastbound 10th - only
one gets through on green.
Pushes buses to
the left turn lane
on northbound Ford.
And finally, guides cyclists
briefly into 10th street
traffic going east.
Just, thought you should know:
you’ve done great obstructing progress!

Thank you very much.
Mike Howard,
Golden
