Vehicles, the cars are not just for you! We have to share the roads, not matter how stupid the pedestrian may be. The burden is on you to look out for them.

The victim was a BICYCLIST, not a pedestrian. You're not too bright, are you?

Your spliting hairs makes you the moron. Anyone in a multi-ton vehicle should take extra caution for those who are not. Let's not make this about me, but about the poor person who has lost their life. Focuss...

The driver was in a Honda Accord, hardly a "multi-ton vehicle". Like I said, you're not very bright. Or am I splitting hairs again?

The law places the burden on the driver of the vehicle over cyclists and pedestrians. Obviously, it is in the best interest of those not in vehicles to be mindful of their environment. But, there is little you can do if the driver is drunk and simply headed in your direction. A car weighs a lot more than a huffy. But, Iím sure as a southerner, the principles of weights and measures are too complicated for you.

Your other problem is that you have made this topic about you. This is about the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.

There is no doubt that you know how to read. Do you require validation from me?
