Pedestrians need to take more care

Elmer the safety elephant must have died, as no one follows his advice anymore.

Elmer the safety elephant must have died, as no one follows his advice anymore.

Instead they wear dark clothes and walk on the wrong side of the road constantly. The sui-side of the road. Very often simultaneously teaching their children in tow, to put their fragile bodies at high risk of vehicle collision.

I have spoken to a few, about pedestrian safety, and it’s all news to them. I alerted the mayor to have signs reminding them, and a sign was erected. It translates to: “Drivers, watch for people with their backs to you dressed in black.”

I live on Allenby, likely the worst stretch for road to walk on.

Elmer, they need your help!
