From today's News Leader...

Bike rider hit by car
STAUNTON — A 17-year-old boy was hit by a Mazda SUV driven by a Staunton woman Monday afternoon. The teenager was riding east on West Beverley Street when Julie Shiflett, 19, traveling west on West Beverley Street, turned left onto Mulberry Street and hit the teenager.
The boy was thrown from his bicycle onto the SUV's windshield and then landed on the pavement. He was taken to Augusta Medical Center.

"The injuries are not life-threatening," said officer M.G. Berbes. "It's a bunch of bruises and scratches."
Berbes said that Shiflett will be charged with reckless driving.

Remind me what yesterday's post was about???

at least the bicyclist is not being charged

the bicyclist needs to be seen as part of the equation

cell phones need to be removed from the equation

and full stops at the stop line need to be added

those things would blend in to making so many things better

people need to take it out of auto pilot

He got lucky. Thank goodness he wasn't killed, and thank goodness their charging the driver and not blaming the bike in the road. So about those share the road signs?
