Afternoon Feed, more hits

That would be cars hitting cyclists, not America’s Top 40. Casey Kasem is not going to be counting these down any time soon if ever…

LEO have released the name of the cyclist killed in a SWSS/SWCC wreck in FL last week. Name Released of Bicyclist Killed In Collison with Bus I still can’t get any pictures from the crash site, so I can’t say one way or the other, but my intuition is telling me that the cyclist was alredy riding in the road before he was hit. If I can get more information on this wreck I will update this in a later blog post.

Some more good news from SoCal. CHP recommends manslaughter for motorist suspected of causing Gilroy cyclist’s death I’m happy charges will be filed, but I still think that this deserves more than a misdemeanor. That means in CA that the most the killer driver can get for killing a cyclist would be a year in a county jail.

And from Jolly Olde a cyclist that was killed in a wreck was twice the legal limit for BAC% when she was hit. Death crash cyclist was twice drink-drive limit I know that if you’re going out for a drink or 2 on your bike there’s no way to have a designated driver, but if you find yourself having had too much lock the bike in a safe place, and get a ride from somebody or sleep it off until you are safe to ride again.
