With the start of the fall semester at Cal State East Bay, we're going to see an influx of young people returning to Hayward. That means more cars and more pedestrians, and drivers need to be a lot more cautious.
The start of the school year can be exciting or disappointing, depending on your child. However, going back to school shouldn’t also be dangerous. Unfortunately for many children in California and elsewhere who walk or bike to school, the beginning of the school year spells danger.
You wake up in a California hospital bed, groggy, and have no idea why you are there. Your family is at your bedside.
You go to work in the morning knowing a busy day on the job site awaits. You're going to spend a good portion of your day on a ladder, hammering trim, installing cabinetry, hanging light fixtures or painting. Whatever the boss wants you to do.
The City of Hayward is continuing work on its Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The goal is to build upon the 2007 Bicycle Master Plan to find ways to improve the convenience and safety for walkers and bikers.
