Pedestrian safety

 

Sir, – As a pedestrian, I am interested in the debate concerning cyclists who do not feel safe while cycling on the road. Following a few recent near-misses with cyclists and skateboarders on local footpaths, I now feel anything but safe while out walking. Maybe a solution would be “pedestrian only ” lanes on footpaths? Or should pedestrians consider wearing crash helmets? – Yours, etc,
