When can we get the lights back in Brittingham Park?

Postby beamerboy » Tue Sep 22, 2009 10:05 pm

I understand the city did not replace the lights along the bike path to appease the 4 or 5 homeowners that look across the park to Monona Bay. I am finding this stretch of path very dangerous as a bike rider and pedestrian. I walk my dog in the evening, and have had numerous close calls with bikes that can't see me. and I don't see them. I don't blame the cyclists for not having lights, as I can't think of anywhere downtown a bike light is really necessary. PLEASE return the lights before something bad happens.

It's okay to blame the cyclists for not having lights, because they're supposed to have them.

What about safety?

I do realize though, this downtown bike path won't have lights until there is a lawsuit or assault here. Sad. :cry:

There should be lights throughout Brittingham, at least so the junkies can where they're going. And bikers need to have lights on their bikes/arm/wherever at night.
