Rudolph on the OTrain bike path

dec 2013 060


Picture: billboard at the intersection of the O-Train bike path and Gladstone.

That billboard might cause a few moments anxiety explaining the facts of life to your kid.

Presumably the decision to post it predates the appearance of an Elk further north on the path:  after being surrounded by humans, stressed, and then shot as a menace.

And presumably the deer in the billboard isn’t a major collision hazard to winter cyclists, all swaddled up in bulky winter costume.

As for motorists, I suppose there may be a slight collision hazard along Gladstone with deer. But it’s much more likely for a motorist to run over a pedestrian. How would that poster go over with an adult crossing the street? Or a child?
