To the editor:
One day recently, I made a fun-filled trip from Kasold Drive and Peterson Road to the Kansas University campus.
On Maine, a student was bicycling on the wrong side of the street — texting! At the West Campus Road roundabout, an adult visitor on his cell ignored the “Yield” sign and whizzed in front of me, a not uncommon occurrence, according to the reaction of the control booth attendant. On Jayhawk Boulevard, a young skateboarder zoomed across directly in front of me at no marked crossing.
And this is the town that claims it wants to attract retirees. One hopes that they all have good brakes and quick reaction times!
