  1. This is such terrible news ! It is so scary to ride on the roads anywhere any more ! I think something drastic needs to be done with cell phones. I believe that is a major cause of distractions. I can only assume it was a distraction that caused this person to hit a cyclist. Otherwise why ? I think cell phones need to be disabled when in a car and the car is moving ! Something has to happen to end this craziness !

  2. Why was a 77 yr old riding bike at night. I feel for driver as they were probably scared and not knowing what to do. We all think we would fo better but everyone assumes driver is at fault but why are bike riders careful where they are going. The people in Colorado walk out in middle of street without looking.
