Re: Danger only a matter of time, June 5 letters.
I read with interest Garry Wieler’s letter in Friday’s Peace Arch News.
A couple of years ago, I was nearly knocked over on the sidewalk by a skateboarder. Being a polite young man, he apologized and I hope has learnt his lesson.
Last week, I was walking on the sidewalk on North Bluff Road from Oxford Street towards the mall and encountered two teenagers on bicycles riding pell-mell down the pavement towards me.
Being a fit senior, I managed to jump out of the way. However, had I been using a walker, the outcome would have been very different, with injuries to both parties.
So yes, parents, please have a word with your ‘children’ about safety on our streets.
