I mentioned this in the morning post, that FL is killing cyclists at an accelerated rate, but really, enough is enough! I’m trying to pull up a second link but there is one link to the fourth fatality in just more than 3 weeks. That’s why I’m asking the question in the headline. Today is the 23rd day of the new year and so far in FL there are 4 dead cyclists that I know of from the Media. At this rate there may be more cyclists killed in FL than there are in TX, which considering the bias against cyclists in LEO and in infrastructure and the difference on both size and population. Would my readers from FL please comment about what is happening?
And getting to those (that?) link(s). Bicycle Rider Struck and Killed By School Bus and This was the link that didn’t pull up The first link had a comment that drivers just could not be bothered to keep aware of people not driving cars on the roads, and that if we get killed well that’s the breaks…
The reward for the driver that killed a SoCal cyclist last year has been increased. Reward increased for information in Martinez fatal hit-and-run I hope they find the waste of human skin that did that.
Grants are given out to cycling organizations. Bikes Belong Awards $40,000 in Grants Lots of money given to good people that do good things to put more bicycles on the roads, and roads under bicycles.
And that’s all so far. I’ll have more tomorrow, I have a church function to attend tonight. OK it’s a drum jam and I’m going to spend most of the time shaking it around the fire or drumming, but it’s at church and it is an official church function.
