You’re not as strange as you feel when you purposely avoid metal grates on the sidewalk. Street Zaps keeps records of electrical voltage on public streets in cities. And there are a lot of testimonials.
Philebrity directed us to the site, which includes accounts from pedestrians of electrical shocks on public streets — including this Jan. 8 account on Walnut Street:
“Walking the dog and he practically jumped out of his harness and ran into the street. I had to carry him home – no small feet considering he weights 100 lbs.”
