To young Joey Kaufmann (“Build jumps, skate parks,” Reader Input, Nov. 16) and all Auburn skateboarders: I support your wish for more skateboard parks. Until your wish is granted, however, please do everyone, especially yourselves, a favor – if you’re going to skateboard on wonderful hills like Mikkelsen Drive, stay to the edge of the road and please wear white or bright-colored clothes! Especially at dusk. It is terrifying to see skateboarders flying down the middle of the road, not seeing you until the last second. If it is anywhere near dusk, please bear in mind that while you may be able to see us, we drivers cannot necessarily see you. I’ll make you a promise, Joey - I’ll slow down, if you dress bright. Deal?
Laura Hesse, Auburn
