Letter: Need to dismount

I have lived in this community for 18 months and have concerns every day about my safety.

Bikers, skateboarders and rollerbladers use the sidewalks and travel at high speeds without concerning other pedestrians using the sidewalks. Most bikers have no lights after dark. If they run over anybody, it will be a major disaster. Also, people with power wheelchairs are doing nothing better.

It is time for our city council to set up appropriate bylaws and enforce them. If the city does not enforce dismount policies, it will cause pedestrians to give the city council a class action lawsuit.
