Has anyone else spotted the small parade of rollerbladers in the city this summer? I've seen them all over Center City starting around seven in the afternoon. I saw them all gearing up and mobilizing once at Thomas Jefferson University- so I guess they are all doctors/ students/ etc. I swear I've seen upwards of 50-60 of them at once!

Any thoughts on them? I persoally think its petty cool... (Then again, I don't drive!)

Think how uplifting and unifying it would be if thousands of Philadelphians joined the group as they skated past thier homes....

Not to sound like a hippie or anything....

They are a danger to themselves and others ..

As they are on the street .. they should follow traffic rules.
Philadelphia has a lot of people on foot and they disregard their safety and distract drivers and in center city a notable percentage of drivers are unfamiliar with the area.

If they would follow the rules of the road ... I would applaud them .. otherwise save it for M/L drive on weekends.

Same for bike groups ...
