"Move or get out of the way," he told Action News, "it's very fast paced and they don't watch out for nobody."
Just this week, he sat feet away from speeding cars, and posted a video on Facebook.
"Everybody was commenting, 'get your butt out of the road!'"
Lately, that isn't easy. The Florida Department of Transportation is spending $8.9 million to resurface Philips Highway, and make 16 bus stops ADA compliant by adding concrete slabs so wheelchair riders can load and unload safely.
Action News found, that's where the concrete ends, though. The five mile stretch still has no sidewalks. The FDOT says the property along Philips is owned by the city and private companies, and money to add sidewalks wasn't added into the resurfacing budget.
"We don't have the right-of-way along Philips, and we would have to do considerable utility relocations, and change drainage systems," said Mike Goldman, Public Information Officer for the FDOT. "Obviously are going to continue discussing this issue, but anything else that would be done would have to be done under a separate contract."
Right now, the Jacksonville City Council is reviewing a $37 million settlement with the Department of Justice for ADA problems city-wide, but Cindy Laquidara, General Counsel for the city, tells Action News this project is not part of that settlement.
The Philips Highway resurfacing project began in July, and is expected to wrap up this Spring.
