SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
KATHLEEN FERRY, San Clemente
Thank you, San Clemente councilmembers, for recognizing and taking action to prohibit e-bikes on the Beach Trail and beaches. Unfortunately, I think there’s more work to be done.
I witness, nearly every day, parents who have their children and babies (easily under 4 years old), two at a time, on the backs of these e-bikes riding on streets posted 40 mph. I consider this child endangerment.
Obviously, the parents think it’s a fun activity. The only thing I can do is pray and hope it doesn’t take a tragedy before the city of San Clemente wakes up.
