Glen Sumi of Now Toronto magazine is happy that spring is here (well, almost) and noticed that more and more people are emerging from their abodes to get some sunlight and fresh (really fresh) air.

But Glen has one thing to ask you: please don't be an asphalt asshole.

The pavement isn't yours alone. It's as busy as any highway and requires the same kind of consideration and care for your fellow travellers.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoy a leisurely ramble as much as the next person -- along the boardwalk, in a park, on a tree--lined side street. But on busy thoroughfares, you've got to pay attention.
