The only reason that children stay out of the road is because their parents told them to? Why don't they do the same thing for other things that are dangerous?
No, as a child I did not play with things I was told not to and my parents supervised me. Kids that didn't listen, or who had parents that didn't supervise them where the ones that got injured.
One thing I didn't like as a child was dumb kids and irresponsible parents taking the fun and functionality out of everything. Toys that don't shoot, swings that don't swing, fans that don't spin, and scissors that don't cut because some idiot cannot supervisor or discipline their own child to listen.
Why is it the responsibility of everyone else to raise the children of bad parents. How about this, if you cannot raise your child it should be the parents legal responsibility to find the help they need.
Personal responsibility of ones own children should be the key factor of child safety, not the government sticking warning signs and putting up orange fences everywhere. How did we make it so many years without all the government raising our children? Maybe Darwin's theory of evolution should play out in some instances.

unsecured and somewhat shaky.
B. The objects are an open invitation to children to climb them and you
know it. How many times as a child did you go into an area that was not as
safe as it should have been just because it was there? That's called being
a child. Its gonna happen and did. Thankfully, no one was hurt but THAT
would have happened sooner or later as well.
C. As concerned citizens, don't you think it would be better to AVOID an
accident waiting to happen then sit and watch it happen?
As responsible adults dealing in an area where children are in large
numbers, it is behooving of them to make sure things are tight and secure.
Now, if they don't care about the city's children much less about a possible
law suite over some child getting injured, then I can see them letting it
go. BUT, since the site was secured and posted, it seems to me they
recognized the potential danger and moved to remedy the situation. For
that, at least, they should be appreciated.
