I have to stop, get out, grab one barricade and swing it/drag it out of the way; then do the other one, drive through, put them back. I don’t like touching them as the whole alley stinks like piss. I know they’re not exactly legal, it’s a public right-of-way, and they probably ‘borrowed them’ from somewhere. It’s easy; if you look around there’s cones and barricades all over that the city has left after their work is done.
I put them back anyway, how I found them, knowing that at the end of my day I’ll have to move them again to get out. I’m the outsider here, temporary; they’re the residents. The next alley over they put wrought iron gates with chains and locks. The rumour is we have a key. I haven’t seen it and I don’t bother… sliding the barricades is simple enough.
