Support for sidewalks, crosswalks in Bay Roberts
In the Town of Bay Roberts, around busy streets or on the main roads, many people still walk. My main concern is that there is not enough room near the side of the road. Sidewalks would be a great asset to this town. There have already been some incidents where people have come close to being hit by a car and last year an elderly woman, while crossing the road, got struck by a car.
There are only a few crosswalks around Bay Roberts and they are by the schools. There should be more on the main road for those people who are either too young to drive or don’t have their licence. It is hard for people without these objects in our life to do their dayto-day routines.
Yes, there may be some sidewalks around but most are on side roads or streets that aren’t too busy. I believe that without sidewalks and crosswalks in our town more accidents will occur with the worst outcomes. The town should try to avoid these accidents with the simple task to consider the citizens’ safety.
