Pedestrian Safety / Bicycle Safety

We MUST be more sensitive to the incompatibility of pedestrians and bicycle, skateboard, scooter and rollerblade riders on the sidewalks of Main Street. 

It is the law in Zelienople that riding on the Main Street sidewalks is prohibited; so is riding on Main Street.  Bicycles must be walked on the sidewalks of Main Street; rollerblades and skateboards are prohibited. 

It is important to recognize that many of the pedestrians are senior citizens who may not be adept at avoiding this type of accident.  Signs have been stenciled on the sidewalk ramps to remind everyone of the "no-riding" law. 

Let's make our youth and others aware that this safety issue applies throughout the community and that they should be sensitive to sharing the sidewalks.
