Dear Editor:

If the speed limit were to be lowered to say, 10 km/h (the speed of a horse), then moms, the walking texters, and others could wander wherever they like without having to look where they’re going.

The next step could be a return to horse travel, but then those entitled pedestrians would once again have to watch where they step.

On the other hand, what if we raise the speed limit up to 60? Might that compel these trusting foot-users to finally take responsibility for where they walk, and how much attention they give to their own safety?
