Babsy Posted September 21, 2013 Report Share Posted September 21, 2013 There is two things I would like to see dealt with. Now I am retired I like to go for a wander about the town, however I fear I am going to meet my maker under the wheels of a push bike. Great grown men and women yelling at me to move out of their way I got a badly bruised hand from walloping it against the handlebars as one went sailing past,I am elderly and have gone a bit deaf I should be able to walk safely on the pavement. Yes indeed if a couple of officers or even a traffic warden were to spend a bit of time once in a while dealing with pedal cyclists riding recklessly down the pedestrian parts of the street (sometimes going the wrong way) and on pavements generally when they should be on the road then it would be a fine thing. Of course I mean adult cyclists........young kiddies are probably safer on the pavements. You're right the roads are for cars, bikes & trucks, etc. The pavement is for pedestrians. I wasn't aware that this was an issue - are you able to provide any particular areas / times when this happens and we'll have a look. Thanks Thankyou for replying, I usually have my walk morning and afternoon along Commercial Road / North Road / Lochside, or I do all the Streets. I have stopped walking around the Clickamin because of dogs not on their leads. I seem to meet bikes when ever I am out, some are even wearing helmets.
