I must be crazy, I’m making another stab at getting the stuff I need by taking the bus, and the Feed.

Well I’m about to try to get my stuff again, but this time I’m only going to one place. And there is nothing in the Feed Folder at the moment so I can’t even begin to filter until I get something. And I’m back with the stuff I left for a few hours ago. This trip was not so bad I left at 1030 and was home before 1330 with the music wire.

A minor wreck in TX. Minor injuries noted in bike wreck Intersection wreck, use the protocols to avoid or to mitigate damages, and get the infrastructure right to prevent.

A MA child is killed while riding a bike. Boy struck and killed while riding bike Nothing on the mode of the wreck, but as it was a kid hit by another kid, I’m going to go out on a limb and declare it infrastructure-related. If they were following the Dutch model then the likely area for the wreck would have had a 20Km/hr speed limit which would 95% of the time resulted in little more than scrapes and bruises. More Boy Struck And Killed While Riding Bike In Mass. and 13-year-old struck, killed on bicycle in Hopkinton, Mass. That last link shows a highway running through a residential area as the scene, and the most likely mode of the wreck as hit-from-behind. The victim was struck just a few feet from his home as he entered the driveway.

A CT double wreck injured 2 boys. Two Boys Injured After Being Hit By Car While Riding Bikes Intersection wreck, use the protocols to avoid or to mitigate damage, and get the infrastructure right to prevent. And I was so relieved to find out that the driver was not injured when hitting 2 little boys with a light armored vehicle. [/sarcasm]

A NC double hit-and-run with one fatality that might turn into two. 1 cyclist dead, another injured in hit and run Hit-from-behind at high speed on a minor highway that is a connecting route between neighborhoods. The Street View of the location shows an area with good sight lines and no shoulder on the road, but 2 lanes in each direction leaving one to pass with. Since lack of lights and/or reflectors was not mentioned I have to assume they were present because if there’s anything The Media likes to do is blame the victims when someone riding a bike gets hit. I’m going to place this one in the infrastructure category as the location was about as bad as you can get for bike riding with the 45 MPH speed limit and no place to get away from motor vehicles with curbs on both sides of the road, so infrastructure to prevent and put a shock-sensitive claymore mine pointed back to avoid. Well not avoid so much as to leave an identifying mark on the weapon vehicle.

More on the victim of that left cross in CA. Former Amazon CFO killed while riding bicycle Now maybe something will be done about drivers who kill… Nahh, nothing will change in the near future about cyclists getting killed on the roads. Long-term, maybe, but with the gutless passing law on Gov. Moonbeam’s desk after he vetoed two previous bills being the best legal infrastructure CA can seem to muster.

And those are all the links that gave me fits about bicycles, or something like that.

Billed @€0.02, Opus
