This is a Public Service Announcement – this winter, please clear the snow and ice from your sidewalk. You may not use your sidewalk much in the winter and perhaps you think others don’t either. But think about who does still use your sidewalk – the mail man (or “postal carrier”), your neighborhood dog walkers and local runners. Sure, most runners run in the streets but when there are a few feet of snow piled up along the curbs, runners need to head for the safety of the sidewalk when cars are coming down the street. Snow, ice and frozen ruts make walking and running hazardous. So, please take the extra five minutes to clear a path down your sidewalk. Runners, dog walkers and postal carriers will thank you.
