Fig. 9. The bus stop area as seen
from the wheelchair ramp. The pole that the bus stop sign is mounted on
can be seen at the tip of the red arrow. [That sign has since been
moved several feet back from it's original location.]
According to Mr. Lee, this sign
was "far" to Karen's right and partly responsible for causing
her to "wander considerably outside of the marked crosswalk".
The photo also shows the former position of the "infamous"
single reflector, represented here by the purple spot, right center (which was no longer present when this photo was taken months after the
reflective dot the appeals judges had
concluded the following (my italics):
"Thus, if immediately before the accident
[Karen] saw only a single orange reflector by her foot she
would not have been most of the way across the street but fairly
close to the curb."
That reflective dot was in actuality over nineteen
feet from the nearest curb, just as the diagram and photos contained in the appeals
brief revealed it to be. Photo taken in '96.
