Do parents just hate having to walk or drive their kids somewhere that much?

Weakness as in complaining is easy; getting up off your duff and doing something positive may be tougher...but it's more rewarding.

This is blight, and frankly I'm glad that someone is taking care of the problem.
Try selling your house when one of your neighbors has a blue beast out front.
The area needs Toledo, now more than ever. These cesspools of filth must come down and these ghetto pigs must learn the error of their ways.
Probably. I was lucky enough at the time to have Simpson pool practically around the block from my house.
All the neighborhood kids would go. Was a great place durring the summer until about the mid 80s when kids from outside
the neighborhood would come and trash up the pool. They had it closed for two weeks durring one summer because some scum bag **** in it.

They brought up the illegal nature of the pools. If you are committing a crime, you should not be allowed to punish the social reformer that wishes to correct such violations. The pool cutter is a hero, and the only ones who should be held accountable are the slum owners who caused this filth through neglect and self entitlement.
Mayfair Pool Slasher Caught On Tape - Philadelphia News, Weather and Sports from WTXF FOX 29
Looks like Mayfair's goin downhill pretty fast...
It might become international, NBC was thinking of showing segments of those lovely Mayfair MILFs sitting by their Plastic Pools followed by AMCE Suppermarket paying for some commercial time.
WOW this is BIG!
Today, I wouldn't let my kids swim in most city pools. So, if my kids were younger, I would buy them a pool. I would take care of it, unlike some neighbors.
As far as trying to sell your house with a neighbor who has a pool out front? If it's well kept, I don't think that detracts from the block. If you're buying in Mayfair, chances are you have-or will have- kids.

I personally don't like these behemoth blue monstrosities on front lawns throughout the NE for the same reason I don't like chain link fences on the fronts of row homes. They both look terrible! If and when pools are taken down after the summer is over, there's always a huge brown circle of dead grass on the lawn that lasts until the spring.
So if many of these pools are illegal, why aren't L&I inspectors out cruising the neighborhoods in their air-conditioned city cars and citing these people? They are out and about on other violation calls and inspections, no? I guess they don't see them.
