Re "On a mission to get bikes off sidewalks" (The Conversation, Aug. 17): Hilary Abramson's article was a chilling account of what I fear could happen to my neighbor Helen who, at the cusp of 100 years, finds a daily meditation in sweeping her driveway and sidewalk. With poor hearing and eyesight, she is no match for the numerous encounters with idiots riding their bikes on the sidewalk.

Having served many years working with former Senators Thomas Kuchel and Alan Cranston, she is no stranger to the effectiveness of implementing meaningful laws and fines against those who refuse to abide with the bike lanes already provided, much less a protected lane.

Steve Hansen, are you listening?
