Not a Speedbump

Re the letter from Ms. Roig concerning her accident on her bike, I echo her comment that the streets and sidewalks in Santa Barbara present hazards in the form of cyclists, dogs, and skateboarders. In the same week, I was told firsthand of the experience of an older female friend who had been knocked down by a cyclist on the sidewalk downtown. She spent the night in the hospital. These incidents cause us older folk much alarm.
