I have argued till I was blue in the face that the law was backwards and that bikers should travel against traffic and not with it. The biker at least has a small amount of time to see what's coming and try to avoid it.First I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the family. I lost my ten year old son much the same way in 2005. I realize this was an accident, but the child was hit from behind and that is not exceptable. The law in mi. states that bikes have a right to the road the same as cars. But a car cannot over take a bycycle on the road. This seems to be the what has happened here too.

That is one idea to help with this problem. Another is a device called "Vehicle to pedestrian communication. It's suppose to alert drivers of someone ahead?? GM has come up with this.

There are a few of us down here in Quincy that are in the process of trying to get the speed limits reduced to a safer speed. 55 is too fast.
