Trip Hazard

A trip hazard is a crack, gap, or elevation change in a sidewalk that exceeds a half  inch in width and depth. Tree roots and temperature changes can cause these sidewalk hazards. When sidewalks develop a crack, gap, or elevation change larger than a half inch, it is the adjacent property owner's responsibility to repair the trip hazard or hazards.
