Went over the WLH bridge yesterday and some jackrabbit was on a bike, no helmet, not a "bike" rider type person, just regular clothes, and a backpack. Beyond stupid. Right to do it, doesn't mean you should. There was a sidewalk less than a foot away. Nothing worse than going down Mills Branch, at rush hour, the sun is in your face, and there is a bike rider. Yes a rider can ride anytime. But in rush hour, on Mills Branch is insanity. Just like a dog walker out in the morning at 6:30 with 4 dogs on a leash, walking. You are lucky to see the person let alone the 4 dogs all on long leashes. Yes drivers have to pay attention, but so do people on the streets. We have greenbelts and sidewalks. They are best used at rush hour. Be aware that walking in the early morning sun, can make you invisible to a driver. And dead and right, is still dead.I never go over 20 in the neighborhoods. Not ever. I always worry about hitting a kid or dog that may run out. So it isn't about being a speed demon in the am's. Or at rush hour. It is about a little common sense all around.
@Fallon : I see a plethora drug induced zombies walking and riding bikes up and down Mills Branch/Ford Rd in the early morning hours.
