Pedestrian PSA

Aug 21, 2019

To the Editor:

Public Service Announcement: Pedestrians, please keep to the left and walk against the traffic! While the bright yellow signs posted in Long Beach Township are helpful, many walkers and joggers ignore or aren’t aware of the dangers they could face walking or running with cyclist and automobile traffic.

While biking, I politely ring my bell and shout, “Excuse me! Coming through!” as I try to maneuver around parties of three blocking the entire bike path. I am often met with rude comments and looks of disgust as we bike past.

My family has experienced a serious injury due to the public’s lack of safety knowledge, so please, let’s share the road and keep us all safe.
