In the last couple of days, there have been a couple bike accidents, and I always debate about posting about them, because I want people to ride their bikes, and I worry that they will think it’s too dangerous. I always do post them tho, and hope that it doesn’t make people nervous, maybe just more thoughtful.
Anyhow, here’s a thread for the weekend to talk about roads in Morristown, or towns around in New Jersey and what you would change and what should be enforced, and whatever is your pet peeve. If you need ideas about what is annoying, here is a local blog about driving in Morristown.
I know at one meeting I was at a woman suggested that inside the town limits, there should be no turn on red, and as someone walks a lot, I was really excited about that idea, but it turns out noone else was, it totally drives me crazy because people turning right hardly ever check to the right to see if there is a pedestrian and they pull up and block the crosswalk.
In Montclair, the police recently received a grant and are posing as undercover pedestrians and ticketing drivers who don’t stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.
I’m going to leave this post up through the weekend, so if you have something you think of, please post it after your walks and rides and good times.
Also, I have been thinking of trying to get more newsy and post a featured biker every week, but haven’t gotten around to it. I think I see this guy riding down Western or someone on a bike with handlebars like that but he is too fast and I can never catch up with him. Does anyone know who that is? As you are thinking about Morristown roads, also try to think of what stores you want in Morristown, and post where they are now and if you have their website or phone number here. It would be great to get some awesome places to expand to Morristown.
