Yes. - Feb 2018


Absolutely, my husband bikes to work sometimes and it is just miserable. No sidewalks, potholes in the street, etc. - Nov 2017


In many ways, yes. There are precious few sidewalks and drivers have very little regard for people with disabilities in parking lots or on the road. Some buildings are constructing ramps and an increasing number of companies (like Pick n Pay) go out of their way to employee deaf, mute, or learning disabled persons. - Jan 2017


Definitely. There are few sidewalks and even fewer ramps in the city. - May 2016
