One response to Monday’s litany of shame
Laura Herd read Monday’s litany of shame and sent in this message:
Here’s why no one in Traverse is paying attention to infrastructure/design planning.
Here’s what happens when you go to 9 & 10’s website and search the word pedestrian.
Of the top 10 on the first page…
… 7 are about pedestrians being hit
… 3 are about pedestrian safety infrastructure
Out of the full 17 results…
… 10 are about pedestrians being hit
… 5 are about pedestrian safety infrastructure or design(2 are about the same pedestrian tunnel)
… 1 is safety tips for pedestrian trick-or-treating
The last and final result tells you to walk inside if there isn’t anywhere safe near you (IN NORTHERN F**KING MICHIGAN) to walk outside.
The Inside Scoop: Walking Indoors Keeps You Active Year-Round. Why? …Because your job schedule has changed or home life demands have increased. Perhaps there are no sidewalks, trails or safe pedestrian areas near your home or work.
Why aren’t there safe, comfortable and convenient sidewalks or trails near where we live and work? And, why isn’t that news?
To be fair, UpNorthLive results.
