Best to pull over
Monday, March 12, 2012 - 12:26 pm

First, let me commend you (“Relax and Enjoy the Ride,” Sound Off, March 7-13) on being a committed pedestrian, as long as the ‘committed’ you are referring to is the passion to which you embrace your role of pedestrian and not the status of your current living arrangements. Too many of us today are taking the role of pedestrian for granted, so it’s refreshing to see someone putting forth the effort. Also, at 6:45 in the morning, most of us travel to our places of employment so that people like you who have no idea where people go at 6:45 in the morning can have a check mailed to you. When one person notices a line of cars, trucks and buses behind them longer than a traffic jam into a Phish concert, the polite thing to do would be to casually swing over to the side of the road and ‘throttle back,’ enjoy that ‘pretty’ view you speak of from the shoulder for an extra minute or two.
