TOM FARANDA'S LETTER TO THE GAZETTE--BUILDING A BIKE LANE AS AN "ESSENTIAL SERVICE"
Here's my letter - the Gazette is the once weekly local newspaper. The bike lane was suggested at least as far back as 2009 - suddenly it's "essential"? Below the letter are two pictures I took Monday - note the men have no masks - and of course are working in close proximity to each other.

Tom, thanks for your letter. To deem this project "essential" would be laughable, if it didn't expose the workers and village residents to such dire consequences. I don't believe we have ever had a grave injury occur at the entrance to the train station. When Route 9 southbound exit traffic becomes controlled by a traffic light, and westbound bike traffic tries to beat a changing light, one can see how a grave injury (including death) might ensue. It would never happen with a stop sign, as each car comes to a complete stop; not so with a changing light. Sad, very sad.ReplyDelete
