You would never see this happening in California.
But see, we are in Texas.
In California this would be encircled with chain-link fencing topped off with razor wire, signs posted:
Keep Out, No Trespassing, Violators will be prosecuted, punishable by fine or imprisonment.
It really is nothing to walk along this.
Three feet wide, no water current and not slippery.
This is all that is really needed.
Although California likes to proclaim itself as a liberal state it has more rules, regulations, restrictions and laws than most of the rest of the states in the nation. It ranks #4 as the most restrictive state.
Or to put it another way #47 in personal freedoms.
Meanwhile Texas ranks #5 in having the most economic and personal freedoms along with one of the smallest governments in the country and low taxes.
