Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

Edgartown-West Tisbury Road is a tough one to cross. It’s busy with traffic from both directions. My infant grandson and I waited with the stroller off at the side waiting for a clear, safe passage. The wide, paved bike path on the other side is perfect for long stroller walks. Cars of all sorts drove by from left and right. We waited. Then a big, blue work truck stopped and waved us across. Phew! On our walk every time we crossed a street it was the big trucks and a bus that went out of their way to stop and let us pass. I think the children’s books about the big friendly trucks and machines that save the day are true!
