That Pittsburgh is the second-safest city for walkers (“This ’Burgh Was Made for Walking,” May 20) is, for disabled people, a poignant paradox. Many of us have repeatedly phoned the mayor’s 311 hotline, asking that the potholes at the intersection of Forbes and Shady in Squirrel Hill be filled, or else the walk lights be readjusted so that we have more time to navigate around them. As spring morphs into summer we seem to be ignored.

In this city of walkers, those who walk more slowly are constantly in harm’s way.
