Flag Jutting Out Onto Sidewalk Air Space

metro pcs flag jutting out 2

This advertising flag was seen jutting out from the Metro PCS store on Sheepshead Bay Road (between Jerome Avenue and Voorhies Avenue).

Pedestrians, like the one seen dodging the flag, who are trying to avoid curb drivers, can be seen bending to avoid suddenly hitting the flag.

We don’t need a lot of words to explain why this type of advertisement is wrong, wrong, wrong. But, why does Metro PCS feel that their business is so special enough that they should have this type of sign invading the walking space?
