Michael has shared his plight in a Letter to the Editor of the Morning Call. Please do not make him ride his bike into the corn:
I’m a 12-year-old boy and I like to ride my bike a lot. I think it is very scary when I’m riding on the street that has no shoulder and cars come flying by without slowing down. I live in the country so I can’t go into the grass because it’s just corn. I’m just hoping people would be a little more cautious when they see walkers and bikers on the road.
This is why we need a Complete Streets policy at PennDOT.
