Protect us, keep roads clear

One recent morning, driving to church down Walton Way, a couple of thoughts came to mind when I saw the orange cones down the street and police cars at intersections.

The first thought was: Why are they running on the street when there is a nice path along the canal that would not require running on hard cement and obstructing traffic? Second: In these economically difficult times, why is law enforcement manpower being expended, making it difficult to get to church on a Sunday morning?

I think serious thought should be given to developing a course that uses the scenic route along the canal, which has a much better running surface and does not block main traffic routes, as is presently the case, allowing police to get back to their main task – protecting the public from crime.
