While working nightshift I have nearly clobbered several people on bicycles and skateboards.They travel with no lights or reflective clothing which makes them nearly impossible to see at night.Get killed if you must,just use someone elses car to get hit by.Please.

I wonder, though, if the driver (who crossed the cyclist's lane) used their turn signal. If not, which I suspect is the case, then they are at fault. Too many drivers don't use their turn signals when they THINK nobody needs to know they are turning. Prime example of why that tiny little action - a flick of the hand - should always be taken.

No Helmets ...Riding on wrong side of the road ....Riding on sidewalks ...Running yellow and red lights.... Not stopping at stop signs ....Not signalling...No lights at Night.... Dark clothing...Zig Zagging across traffic Lanes...
I see this everyday from Bike riders,it's not occasionally, it's typical..
The fact there's not more bike riders smucked is the puzzle, not that there is the odd one ..
