You say that any and all obstructions should be removed from the traveled portion of the roadways. Does this include the slow moving drivers in the left lane? How about the individual who breaks BEFORE pulling into the center turn lane? What about the "texter" at the red light who continues to sit there after the light turns green? These drivers, certainly, need to be removed from the "traveled portion of the roadway" but, since the fountain is NOT in the traveled portion of the roadway, it should stay where it is.
