Post Turkey Day CARnage and apocalypse in the Feed

I hope everyone read my Sunday post. If I have ever written anything from the heart this came straight from my heart. Just so you know I’m not “just” a bicycle advocate. I am a “people” advocate.

Up first is this link predicting the turkey armageddon

Our Daily Ted. Morning Links: Daily News spins bike news badly, not getting it San Pedro, and a local bike rider needs your help

Still in CA. Woman injured in Escondido hit and run, police seek suspect and Cyclist badly injured by Escondido hit-run driver The narrative suggests a right hook as a car turning east from going north would be making a right turn. I hope they catch the driver of that Toyota and run the car through a shredder.

On the other side of the country the most deadly state in the US to walk or ride a bike kills another one. Canadian bicyclist killed in crash with van; driver charged Another right hook as bike infrastructure is placed next to car infrastructure and depending on drivers to pay attention without putting a high price on drivers for not paying attention. Because we know cyclists pay a high price when drivers don’t pay attention to what’s to their right.

Drivers are puzzled by bicycle infrastructure in Indianapolis. What’s the deal with those funky new bike lanes on Pennsylvania Street Downtown?

A peloton is taken out in MD. Four cyclists hurt in chain-reaction pileup in Potomac, Md.

Jurisprudence in the Great White North. Milton man pleads guilty in connection to cyclist’s death in July and Milton man pleads guilty careless driving in cyclist’s death This had to be the result of a plea bargain because there was a hit-and-run with an unregistered vehicle.

Victim report from the Great White North. Chatham cyclist killed by vehicle was working to build better life for family An 18 YO dad with a 3 YO daughter speaks to some bad choices early in life that he was working to overcome.

Another link to the protest against CARnage in Jolly Olde. ‘Coffin’ protest outside TfL over cyclists’ safety in London

Windshield bias in Malta as LEO claim things that are impossible to blame the victim. Malta is always on drivers’ side, insists injured cyclist

Cyclist killed in Enn Zed. Cyclist died after colliding with van in Nelson The weapon vehicle in this wreck was not just an ordinary car, it was actually “weaponized” with reinforced bars protecting the front end.

This is one of the few news outlets that covers without bias. Carless cities are Europe’s future

And now I’m out of links again.

  1. Interesting that a peloton pile-up has been deemed newsworthy! Culture’s changing!
