I say baloney to Mr. Sharpe’s letter regarding cyclists feeling unsafe on roads so it’s better to illegally ride on safer sidewalks and put pedestrians at risk.
I’ve travelled around Truro early morning and late night; no traffic to speak of, and still cyclists riding on sidewalks in both directions of traffic flow.
It’s just a matter of time when someone steps out of a bank or store not thinking they should have to look both ways because this is not a road and gets t-boned by a guy or lady on a bike, moving at a speed of 10 to 15 kms and seriously hurts the unprotected pedestrian.
Can we say lawsuit? Cyclists feel immune to the law.
