I concur with Mr. Robert Stirling, regarding everyone needing to be responsible [Walkers need to watch, too, Feb. 26 Letters, TIMES].
I have noticed on a daily basis pedestrians with things plugged in their ears, texting, and walking the streets without regard for their own safety or the safety of others around them. They are wearing hoodies, walking out on to the street without exercising any caution whatsoever, thinking, I guess, that they are rulers of the planet and that everyone should watch out for them.
Cyclists dash out into crosswalks without dismounting.
There should be some patrols, and these people should be held accountable for their inappropriate actions, just like the rest of the population, like the people who drive vehicles. There are rules for everyone.
