Terry McNamara Command Master Chief: CMDCM (SW/AW) Warren Britten Public Aairs Ocer: Mr. Randall Baucom Editor: James O'Donnell Layout: Garrett Zop NEWS AND NOTICESComment: The parking lot behind the main NEX is currently under construction. All that is available is the sidewalk the lot itself is completely blocked o. However, this does not stop people from riding their bikes on the sidewalk. The sidewalk barely has enough room for two people to walk. People walking and obeying the rules, are forced to move out of the way for people riding their bikes. This is unacceptable as Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka @cfay_pao @CFAY_Japan yokosukareport@ gmail.comriding bikes on sidewalks is against the CFAY rules. There are alternative routes for them to take with their bikes. I think it is necessary that a sign put out at both entrances to the sidewalk that states that bicycles are not allowed, or that the rider needs to dismount and walk their bike through, past construction.
