Sidewalks

If we are going to add bike lanes on Roseland can people PLEASE use the sidewalks instead of running on the shoulder? Waste of tax money if no one uses it. This kind of goes for the rest of the city as well.

Running and Cycling

People run in the street because the sidewalk is often impassable, torn up by time and tree roots or congested with slower traffic (see kids, strollers, walkers). These are community streets and they are NOT exclusively for cars. They are for communities (See All of Us). Embrace the runners, cyclists, be a good neighbor and kindly slow down while your driving your two-ton vehicle through our neighborhoods.

They are for cars and bikes. Sidewalks are for people. Go read up on your traffic laws. If you get hit by a car where there's a sidewalk available and you aren't using it, you have a duty to follow the law just as that vehicle would.

Oh, I've read my traffic laws, Concerned Resident. You have a duty to use the sidewalk *if* it is in good condition and otherwise unobstructed. That's a big if in Homewood.
