Crosswalks are not a safe place to be. Sidewalks are considered private parking spaces. Stop signs are just a suggestion. Speed limits are not routinely enforced. What makes you think a BAN on anything would make any difference?" Reader Bill Miller, commenting on the story, "What Would You Ban in Stoneham?"
