To the Editor:
Ms. Pearson did not exhibit “petty righteousness” when she asked for the pedestrian who was strolling on the improper side of the highway to stroll on the correct aspect of the highway, contrary to what was said in the letter “Ugly Come across, Indeed” (7/29). Walking on the wrong side of the road is perilous not only mainly because of the pandemic but also mainly because she would be pressured to wander into targeted visitors to social distance and go about the particular person on the erroneous aspect of the street.
Procedures are set in put for a rationale and must apply to every person. Ms. Pearson did not make up this rule, nor is she mistaken in requesting it be adopted. It is ignorant and inconsiderate of the other man or woman, and her reply was totally uncalled for.
If it is also scorching to wander on the other facet of the street, then don’t stroll at all! Many inhabitants and neighbors in Barnegat Gentle who are normal walkers all agree. We are all “entitled” to stroll on the accurate aspect of the street in peace.
