Re "City is making progress in effort to make bicycling safer for all" (Forum, Aug. 17): Hilary Abramson was smart to bring readers' attention to the alarming number of bicycles weaving in and out of pedestrian traffic in the central city. As one who traverses Capitol Mall and L Street with great frequency, I marvel at the disregard of those on bikes for the safety of those afoot.

Yes, the City Council should move to adopt an ordinance to prohibit the use of sidewalks, given the number of bike lanes already available.
