Ragged and potentially dangerous remains of public park boundary fencing are made safe for passers-by (especially wobbly cyclists and small children) by placing coffee cans over the ends. This simple safety-adjustment replaces (temporarily, perhaps permanently) costly and time-taking commercial solutions while at the same time being lightweight and subtle enough so as not to raise the ire of a picky city maintenance bureaucrat. It is also evidence of the care that the ‘fixer(s)’ have for their neighbours. More than just a box-ticking safety exercise, this is also a frugally heartwarming act.
