To the editor:

Bud Hunt’s article (“Campus Frogger, and other lapses of thought,” Jan. 29) made perfect sense. Almost.

I would just like to suggest one idea, however. Perhaps Mr. Hunt should step out of his Mercedes and try walking to school for once. Or riding.

You want to play Frogger? Try taking on a four-way stop at 3:15 p.m. on your bike. Try being the pedestrian crossing Laurel, or crossing Shields at Elizabeth. Behind the wheel, you’re not the frog being eaten by alligators. You’re the alligator. The pedestrians are the frogs. I hear Coach Lubick almost got hit at that corner because of some guy making a right turn without looking. Same thing happened to me. This town has some of the worst drivers I have ever seen.

I don’t know how you can expect the rest of us to do any better in a place where crosswalks mean nothing.

And let me clarify this: You actually expect bikers on campus to come to a full stop at a stop sign?

Good luck.
