September 7, 1999


To the editor:

This letter is in response to Mr. Walker and Ms. Holland. As a taxpayer, motorist, and cyclist, I feel compelled to respond. What makes you feel that you have a greater right to the use of our public roadways than cyclists? I urge motorists and cyclists to work together to coexist on our roadways. But, I maintain my rights as a cyclist to use the public roadways.

Many times while riding on these same roads around Lawrence, I have come upon slow-moving farm vehicles. I wonder how your view these slow-moving vehicles as different than a bicycle. Are you proposing banning them also?

A driver's license includes the responsibility to safely operate your vehicle. I urge you to takes this responsibility and drive in a manner that allows you to safely operate your vehicle in all instances, whether it be coming up on a slow-moving cyclist, a broken down vehicle, or slow-moving farm vehicles.

Raj Mitra,
