Last night I didn’t get home until after 2100 because of the snafoodle with the local mass transit agency, and we didn’t even get to stop for dinner along the way, so lunch was a cup of coffee about 1300 and I didn’t get anything else to eat or drink until 2200. Needless to say the reheated leftovers were the best food I had in ages…
First up, more on that entertainment industry lawyer killed by a LACS deputy over the weekend which is still the Big Story. Former Napster Executive Fatally Hit By Police Car While Biking also Ex-Napster COO Milton Olin Jr. Killed After Being Struck by Sheriff’s Patrol Car and Former Napster exec killed on bike after being struck by sheriff’s patrol car LACS has seriously screwed the pooch on this one, not only did they kill a lawyer, the killed a lawyer with a multi-million $$ PR firm under retainer, and hey, they killed a lawyer who was minding his own business. And hey I found some more links. Milton Olin RIP, and a San Jose memorial ride also LASD Sheriff Strikes and Kills Cyclist in Bike Lane with Police Cruiser and from the UK Former Napster COO, 65, killed after his bike is struck by sheriff’s patrol car
More on that MI SWSS wreck from yesterday that I only had a blotter-style report of. Bicyclist killed after swerving in front of truck and Bicycle rider hit by truck, killed Hit-from-behind protocols to avoid or to mitigate injury, and get the infrastructure right to prevent.
I’m still trying to figure out how NYPD can tell e-assist bikes from regular bikes and illegal bikes from legal electric mopeds. Video: Delivery Workers Plead For Relief From Electric Bike Ban
And last link is a bit of privately created infrastructure for S.F. CA cyclists. The Ingenious Way One San Francisco Bicyclist Is Making It Easier to Commute Having good bike routes is nice, but generally useless unless people know they are there and where they go and how to get to them. This solves some of those problems.
And those were all the bike links that gave me fits today.
