Letter to the Editor

September 26, 2007

We all endured a summer of construction on campus and in town. Many of us became somewhat annoyed. We had to dodge big construction machinery when we walked and deal with rough pavement when we drove.

We patiently waited for the road crew to tell us where to go, sometimes taking long detours to get where we wanted to go. That is over now. Main Street looks beautiful. The bike path is something many people have been waiting for a long time. I already see how it has encouraged people to ride their bikes and that is awesome. The bus stops look great and safe.

But I see one problem. The other day while crossing on a crosswalk I almost got run over by a bike rider. I must confess I was a bit shaken. It reminded me that a couple of years ago a pedestrian in Boston was killed when a bike rider collided with him. I don't know how this should be done but pedestrians need to be advised that they must look out for bikers and bikers need to be aware that they must stop for pedestrians.
