Letter | Beware of cyclists, not just unleashed dogs
As a resident and dog owner, I can certainly sympathize with folks that are accosted by untrained or off-leash dogs. I’ve found that most dog owners here control their dogs — on leash or off, and pick up after them.
However, I’ve also noticed and nearly been made a victim of bicycle riders going through the park at the Lid at unsafe speed levels. Kids, adult walkers (with and without pets), moms with strollers, and Little League ballplayers do not anticipate a bike coming down through the ballfield area at an alarming rate of speed. As mentioned, I’ve witnessed some near misses, and have heard of some spectacular bike-bike and bike-pedestrian crashes.
Could we not post some signs, other than the ‘bikes yield to pedestrians’ that are largely ignored, to require bikes to slow down through the stretch between the tennis courts and the ballfields?
