Did City install dangerous fence?

From the Times Ledger:

A Whitestone nursing home maintenance director said the city’s resistance to redesigning a wrought−iron fence outside of his facility may have been the direct cause of a serious traffic accident at the facility earlier this month.

Steve Cichon, maintenance director at Bridgeview Nursing Home, said an employee at the facility was broad−sided by an oncoming car she could not see because of a city−installed fence near the driveway of the property.

Cichon has waged a nearly yearlong battle against the city over the fence, constructed as a result of the widening of 20th Avenue, contending it creates a dangerous blind spot for drivers pulling out of the nursing home parking lot.
