    When my eyes get tired, this is the exact type of thing (optical illusion) that turns me into a clumsy. (This reminds me to get to the eye doctor - thanks wfgodot!)

    Also, this sort of thing would do me in.

    The council must paint a yellow line as a warning there's a drop-off (which will ruin the pavers - but who cares really) before more people fall. The lady's injuries are terrific. I'd sue in a heartbeat. How dare they jeopardize people in this way.
