Do you feel safe using the Katy Trail given the latest violent attack, which occurred Tuesday, Nov. 27?
“I think the feeling of people who use the trail a lot is that it’s pretty darn safe, so this surprises me that there’s been another attack, particularly in broad daylight.”
“That’s funny because I normally bring my mace, but I forgot it today. I feel better if I have my mace with me. It’s kind of scary.”
“I would say less so, but being men I think we have less of a chance of problems than unescorted girls.”
“I was walking by here shortly after it happened. I don’t carry my billfold or anything with me, so I feel like if they try something, they won’t get anything. It does make me a little nervous.”
“I’m always thinking that it’s never going to happen to me, but that’s really scary. I feel more safe with my dog. That is creepy.”
