Bicycles are the problem? Seriously (“Bike collisions on the rise,” Nov. 9)?
Between jogging and walking my dog, I cover 30 to 50 miles a week on Burbank’s sidewalks, and I can say without reservation that we have some of the most reckless, careless, dangerous drivers I’ve ever come across — which is saying a lot since I lived in Chicago, New York City and Glendale.
Stand on any corner of Oak in the morning and you can watch drivers not merely roll, but completely ignore stop signs, often on their cell phone, with kids strapped into a car seat in the back. It’s almost comical to see SUVs blow off the stop at Keystone, then pull into St. Finbar’s so they can “safely” drop their kid off on the playground.
