Letter: Traffic Agencies Should Also Consider Cyclists, Runners and Walkers

I am a 16-year-old resident of Port Washington and I love to ride my bicycle around town. In connection with the issue of traffic problems in the Port Washington area and the steps the towns and villages are taking to improve the flow of traffic and the safety involved, the planning boards that are trying to resolve this problem should also take into account cyclists, runners, and walkers who also use the roads every day. Since Port Washington is a very beautiful town to walk, run and ride through, the board should make sure of the availability of safe places for these people to use. Thank you for reading this.
