To the Editor:
Does the Hyde Park community realize that the proliferation of joggers on sidewalks has become a safety hazard? Yes. Ask a local resident about leaving a store and almost being run down by a guy or gal in short shorts. It has become a very common occurrence.
When stepping out of a business or residence on certain streets, a pedestrian should always look both ways before stepping outside. Some of these runners have no regard for the natural pedestrian, someone who is walking on a sidewalk. While this may not be true of the entire running community in Hyde Park, once again, a few bad apples ruin it for the bunch. Hopefully, these runners will stop barreling down on people with a little encouraging. In the meantime, keep your head up Hyde Park pedestrians!
