WALK BICYCLES ON SIDEWALKS SIGN TO BE POSTED ON E HARTSDALE AVE SIDEWALK
Release Date: March 25, 2015
PLEASE WALK BICYCLES ON SIDEWALK SIGNS TO BE POSTED ON E HARTSDALE AVE THIS WEEK
Many elderly residents live on E Hartsdale Ave. They walk to and from their apartments to downtown E Hartsdale Ave. Because E Hartsdale Ave is such a busy road, many cyclists bike on the sidewalk –sometimes cycling fast. It’s dangerous. If a bicycle hits an elderly resident there could be serious injuries.
We plan to post signs on E Hartsdale Ave this week advising bicycle riders to WALK their bicycles on the sidewalk—not to ride their bicycles on the sidewalk. If you see a bicyclist who is riding their bike on the sidewalk, please encourage them to walk. Many elderly and disabled residents will feel safer walking and won’t be worried that they will be hit by a bicyclist.
