One of our local law enforcement officers asked me this morning to remind our area residents about what he termed “aggressive strollering.”
Apparently, some have taken to walking with their children (and small dogs) in an unsafe and aggressive manner.
Please be reminded that state law says:
— Strollers must be pushed so that they are going the opposite way of automotive traffic
— Large “gangs” of strollers should travel in a single file line and never stretch the width of the street
— Moderate speeds should be adhered to and loud talking needs to be minimized
— All strollers should be in good working condition and not cobbled together from various bits of other strollers found at garage sales
— Shopping carts are NOT strollers and are banned for such use by city ordinance
— Texting and strolling is generally unsafe, along with harnessing several large dogs to pull your stroller Yukon style
— You may open carry a firearm of your choice while strollering
Please, for the sake of our children, stroller in a friendly, light hearted manner.
