Letter: How do you ride?

Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — I wish to respond to the advertising section “Getting to School Safely” in the Aug. 20 edition.

Item No. 3 under “By Riding Your Bicycle” states that if an individual does not know “the rules of the road” for bicycles, then they should not ride in traffic. Nowhere in the paper do you explain what “the rules of the road” are.

Do you not think the article would serve the public better if the “rules of the road” were included in the article instead of making the reader go elsewhere?

It is infuriating to be driving on a city street and have a bicyclist riding toward me when he should be riding the other way or on the other side of the street. This includes adults and children. I was taught much better than this when I attended Glenwood “many moons ago.”

Under the “By Walking …” section, you state the proper way to walk on a street.

Please state the proper way to ride on a street.
