WINNIPEG -- Those who say the city is falling apart got some ammunition with a video published to Facebook last week.
A Winnipeg driver stopped at the intersection of Watt Street and Chalmers Avenue around 4:30 p.m. on April 9 when a traffic light fell onto the vehicle's hood.
Peter Harzan caught the whole thing on tape. A surveillance camera outside of his workplace captured the event, which he said he never saw coming.
"If I had known it was loose I would have called it in, but you just never know," he said.
Harzan believes the event points to a bigger problem.
"Infrastructure is definitely an issue. If you look at the state of our city, it isn't that much of a shocker," he said.
Harzan's video of the falling light went viral the same day that a new poll identified infrastructure as Winnipeggers' top concern.
The poll, conducted by Probe Research, found approximately 61% of Winnipeggers think infrastructure is the city's biggest problem.
