October 9, 2013

To the Reader's Forum: I think it’s heart wrenching when you hear about those who get into accidents, and then you hear how it happens, and then it makes you cringe....

There are ways to enforce them. Called GPS. Satellites are so good they can pinpoint where your car/phone is at any point. With this technology, they need to put an "out of range" message on the phone til the car isn't mobile any more than 30 seconds. The only number that should be available is 911

I have to say that there are quite a few bad drivers in this area, I see so many people in cars either Texting or Talking on Cell phones while driving and even though this is illegal, I don't know of any real way to enforce those laws. As for Bikers, Well it makes sense to keep and eye out for them when you are driving , just like you would when watching out for pedestrians. I also want to add that just because you ride on two wheels doesn't mean you are a good driver !

As a child I was taught to respect vehicles whether I was walking or riding a bike. Many people just keep walking behind a car that has already started to back out of a parking space...it would be better if pedestrians or bike riders would share the responsibility of their own safety. I realize there are many that do...but many don't.

Maybe they should be. Maybe you should be of certain age to ride a bike, period. A lot of maybes. This thing with the bikers didn't make as much press as what happened to the five year old or the Janes boy, which is a shame.

Bike riders are above the law and do not have to follow the rules of the road. When is the last time you heard of a bicyclest getting pulled over.

I ride my bike through Town and I get harassed by gutless cowards who swear and cuss and continue to drive their cars

Try taking a walk in a gated community where none of the bike riders stop at stop signs!
