Multi-Use Trails (MUT) Are Not Meant to be a Speedway

Multi-use Trails are very popular for bike commuters, to get from point A to point B, safely, without having to worry about being run over by cars.  But one thing I have noticed is some commuters, are using MUT’s as their own speedway.  I mean this is a Multi-use trail, with walkers, joggers, along with cyclists.

Tonight, I was commuting on the bridge overcrossing, above Central Expressway.  Then, this idiot passes me, at pretty high pace.  Slow down dude … what’s your hurry?  Make sure you avoid that jogger or baby stroller ahead of you!  Notice that even I was going 13 mph, and the suggested speed is 15 mph.
