Letter: Please stay safe by walking against traffic!

March 30, 2023

I have noticed the rampant tendency for pedestrians in Concord to walk on the right side of the road, not the left, i.e. pedestrians are not walking against traffic. This is an extremely dangerous habit within town! It is also officially against the rules of the road. The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website declares, “Walk on sidewalks whenever they are available. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible.” Please, PLEASE stop walking with road traffic!
