Grass clippings dangerous when blown in the road

To the editor:

I would like to address a safety issue. It seems as though more and more people are blowing their grass clippings onto the road. This is a major safety issue for motorcycles, bicyclists, and runners. You may not realize it but grass on the roadway for motorcycles etc. is much like black ice when you are in your cars. It is slippery and very dangerous and can cause people to be injured or even cause death should they lose control. It is also ILLEGAL to do this. I would really like to maybe see law enforcement get involved in this because sooner or later someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed because of someone’s foolish decision to do this. I hope this letter will open a few eyes and correct a bad situation.
