Citizen-Z Cavan Young's 2004 film about the zamboni crisis






On the morning of February 7, market day, one of the park bakers was struck by the zamboni as it came off the rink toward the garage. The zamboni was traveling very slowly, and although the baker was actually pushed under the machine between the two front wheels, he was unhurt. Thankfully another rink staff alerted the driver to stop before the augur reached the baker. The problem is, zambonis are an odd shape up front and that makes it hard for the driver to see ahead. So pedestrians, take care when passing any of the three gates when the zamboni is near remember its hard for the driver to see you. Also, the rink staff have put up STOP signs at each rink exit, to remind the drivers that its the same as crossing an intersection you have to stop and look before you drive on. Read More
