    I thought about festooning the area with fluffy throw pillows, but that might be a bit much.

    Yet again my posts are the opposite of helpful.

    I saw someone take a spill turning onto the 14th St bridge connector from the northbound MVT. I think he was just going a little too fast for the conditions and his tires slid out.

    It doesn't have to be wood to be slippery. Moss and algae can grow on asphalt/concrete too. Shade and humidity are the biggest factors.

    This is where I had my spill (discussed in the "On Your Left - Tales of Woe" post).

    I now go really slowly on the bridge and have a bunch of "On your lefts" yelled at me..... what a full-circle moment!

    They should just mix paint with sand, or any of the many softer alternatives like this, (that won't scrape too bad if you still fall) with paint and put a coat on every season.
