Saw the comment count and got my popcorn ready, but nope, just another abuse of the "send" button. One click does it, folks, even when you don't see it post.

Bicyclist Hit on State Street

As someone who has ridden a bicycle in SB since the 1960s and driven a vehicle in SB since the late '60s, and who still does both, I say anyone who runs a stop sign/red light is a selfish, stupid jerk. Too bad we now have an over abundance of such. I really wish entitled vehicle drivers would stop with their rolling stops at stop signs and red light right turns. Shameful idiocy.

I witnessed a guy today ride right in the middle of Cacique and Milpas with a white german shepard on a leash against the light in the middle of traffic in the intersection on a yellow mountain bike toward the beach..On the way back he and the dog took up the whole sidewalk he gave me a dirty look as he went by he was wearing a Raiders hat...Jerk I keep forgetting that I have a cell phone and I can call police.

Actually on State in the middle of the D/W into CVS. So he did not blow the intersection. From the way the vehicle was parked couldn't tell if they were entering or leaving CVS. Older gentleman didn't appear to have been trying to own the road from the position and proximity of his bike.

"If the cyclist was in the driveway to CVS, it's possible the rider crossed traffic from the mountain side of State St. into oncoming traffic, so that would explain why he didn't blow through the intersection." But it's impossible that the driver was at fault, right? Even though, in the vast majority of car/bike incidents, the driver made an illegal, reckless action. "I hate to think that he was riding on the sidewalk and the driver of the car was not expecting it." No, actually, that's what you fervently want to believe. "I hope the cyclist is OK, and has learned a lesson in traffic awareness. " Of course there's no need for reckless drivers to learn any lessons, amirite?

The bike was in the street where he was riding it and he was thrown into the D/W so like I said from the proximity and positions of both he could not have been riding on the sidewalk or crossing from the other side of State. Pretty much only possibility would be N-bound vehicle on State failing to yield the ROW to a S-bound bicyclist with the vehicle entering CVS.

Cyclists feel they own the world and that everybody around them is just a nuisance and should get out of their ways. They have respect for no one else and , of course, for none of the riding rules. I'm only surprised there aren't any MORE incidents ..

So, that's true of every cyclist? What about drivers, like the person who ran over this cyclist? It's bad enough that you would offer up such an absurd generalization, but that three other people would upvote it shows how sick our society has become.

About a month ago we were having a bite to eat at El Pollo Loco, which is located on that corner, and could not believe how many light runners there were. Cyclists really need to look both ways when crossing that (and any) intersection.

HAHAHA! Because a cyclists' attorney website says most incidents are caused by "negligent" drivers, you tout that as a "well-established fact?!" Do you have an ounce of common sense?

On the contrary, you have no way of knowing whether I or anyone else has any way of knowing that it was a negligent driver. As for the other part of my statement, it's a well-established fact that bike/car incidents are usually caused by negligent drivers: https://www.missourilawyers.com/legal-services/bicycle-accident-lawyer/five-common-causes/
