They're Christians.. Regrouping later. Good for them. Unfortunately they must believe bin laden is on his twentieth virgin by now also. Why don't we just add ten years to the sentencing phase as I believe these offenders should eat $hit in this life time..
Don't know if it’s because its spring or just random but saw two car/cyclist accidents in the past week. One they were working on the cyclist the other the police were just wrapping up the investigation. Both were on busy main roads with lots of traffic and at an intersection of a side-street.
Hopefully everyone will be a bit more careful and observant, both on the bike and in the car.
I'm not saying you shouldn't be able to ride to work in the dark, on the streets, but that certainly ups the risk tremendously.
Way to blame the victim. You'll note that there was nothing in the report about lights, so, for all we know, he could have been lit up like the Fourth of July when he was hit.
The point is that someone was killed, which is sad, and the person who did it has not stepped forward to accept the responsibility, whatever that may be, for her or her actions, which is the responsible, just and legally-mandated thing to do.

Dude, did I blame the victim? Geez. I just said it "ups the risk".
I don't feel comfortable at all commuting in the dark. So many opportunities for someone to not see you. Lights help certainly, but let's be realistic, even in the daylight not everyone is looking for bikers.
Agreed. Sometimes I think the commuters are ambassadors in a way. I also think there is strength in numbers. If more people were commuting by bike, it would be safer. I should be doing it more often. When I do, I ride in the street, unlike some others I see, just because bikes belong there too.
At that point it's probably analogous to motorcyles. They suffer some of the same fates, not everyone is looking for motorcycles either.
There is just no common sense and respect for bike lanes- imho
i live out here in HR and there are numerous on street bike lanes and people constantly use them as turning lanes and parking for football games (although they ticket those as its instant revenue) Although i rarely commute being a contractor but occasionally i like to-
I think more exposure to commuting and bicycle awareness is key
