Many of us, as runners, cyclists and motorists, have experienced some confusion. As a youngster, I would ride my bicycle around the neighborhood streets facing traffic, for the reasons she stated, and I continue to do that as a runner, as do most runners.

We rode in the lane facing the traffic so we could see the on-coming car and judge distance to avoid being struck by the vehicle, and the driver of the car could make the same judgment. We never had a problem with slowing down traffic or any accidents in all the years that I lived up there (“County to study bike safety in Emigration Canyon,” Tribune, Feb. 27).
