Rat infestations are a common problem in the city, but one resident is taking matters into his own hands.
Joseph Bolanos, president of the West 76th Street Block Association, installed rat-crossing signs in his neighborhood on the Upper West Side.
The move may be a bit tongue-in-cheek, but Bolanos thinks the signs may carry some weight and bring some attention to the problem plaguing his streets.

This is discrimination! Republicans should be allowed to cross the street in the same places the Democrats are!
The UWS (AKA Moscow on the Hudson) is full of RATS!!
Put some up at the convention next Monday.
Democrat convention attendees suddenly encountering "democRAT Crossing" signs on their way into the convention - now that wold be funny!
Funny but highly temporary ... need to have video crew on site to capture the 99%ers ripping them down.
Seriously, there are rodents running openly in the streets up here in broad daylight. I have never seen anything like it, even in third world cities.
Not to worry. They’re Presidental Rats. They even have some in the White House.
All it’ll take is one of them to host the Hantavirus or some other plague, and there will be a real mess!
“Money was recently set aside for trash cans with built-in compactors in the area.”
The company name is perfect, “Do My Own Pest Control” for these people. Instead of screaming at the sight of rats, bait some $2 traps and clean up the neighborhood instead of wasting tax dollars.
There already are traps up in the area. These are city rats with street and trap smarts.
