To all Boro Council Members,
I hope you can help here.
I was on my way home for Angelo’s with dinner about 6:30 Monday night. As I turned up homewards from Walter Foran, I traveled on North Main towards Thatcher Hill.
Shortly before I hit the Flemington Arms, in the dark about 30 feet ahead a kid on bike crossed my path. He was wearing a black ski cap, black jacket, black everything. He was barely visible. I am not much for imposing a lot of personal rules and “regs” with respect to people’s personal preferences but I ask you to consider requiring bike riders, and we have more and more of them in the Boro, to wear reflective vests after dusk.
I have good eyesight but to me he was hardly visible. He was just a child. I am hoping we can find a way to keep these riders safer.
I hope there is a way to address this problem before someone does get hurt.
Thank you for your consideration.
