Sure the bricks have charm and historic significance but with that comes the responsibility of maintenance. I've seen some of these brick roads in such disrepair that thy are unsafe to drive. When sections of bricks are missing or worse, sticking up on end, it's only a matter of time before they cause an accident or a motorcyclist (or bicyclist) flipping over their handlebars and being run over by the impatient SUV driver behind them.
100% right! I ride a motorcycle and flipped it last week. Thank god I was wearing a helmet because I hit my head on the bricks when I flipped. I was not speading and just crossed the intersection where the garage I was going to was to the left of me. Was accused of speeding (would not be going 25 miles per hour when my destination was 10ft in front of me. All I asked was to fix my bike and fix the bricks and was told it was normal and nothing was wrong with it. My concern is someone will get hurt more then me.

I love brick streets. They have more character, are fun to drive on and photograph. Unforgettable. More brick streets.
