More speed humps may prompt proper use of paths

I applaud Dr William Wan's excellent column ("Road safety begins with me"; last Sunday).

I use park connectors and parks frequently for my walking exercise.

Though there are clear signs and markings on the paths for both cyclists and pedestrians to follow, very often, users are oblivious to them.

I often see parents taking their children to ride their bicycles on the pedestrian paths, or allowing them to stroll down bicycle paths.

I look forward to the day when our people are more gracious and civic-minded, and both cyclists and pedestrian can share the common space harmoniously.

I often see parents taking their children to ride their bicycles on the pedestrian paths, or allowing them to stroll down bicycle paths.

In the meantime, I wonder if placing more speed humps on lanes designated for pedestrians, to deter cyclists from using them, will be more effective in solving the perennial problem between the two groups.
