Exercising pedestrians


To the Editor:

I don't know who the letter writer is and I am sure she is a fine person, but her April 10 Grosse Pointe News letter to the editor, "Safer in the street," stops just shy of being the most astonishing thing I've ever read.

In case the letter writer hasn't checked recently, cars not only (illegally, I freely concede) roll through crosswalks, those same vehicles barrel at high speed, and quite within the bounds of the law, through the same street intersections in which the letter writer beseeches us to jog, walk and bike. Incredible.

The simple and inarguable fact is that pedestrians using the streets contrary to established law for jogging and other forms of exercise make things far more dangerous for drivers, motor passengers, workers and the pedestrians themselves.

I implore the police in our community to enforce the law as written and to take the "exercising pedestrian" off of the street.
