I hope this wakes some people up. Deekawife 3.0 worries about this any time I saddle-up.
As cyclists, we must always be aware of our surroundings. As motorists, we must recognize that bicycles can be everywhere. If everyone plays nice and follows the rules, this happens less often. There are at least 3 or 4 cyclists killed in Southeast Wisconsin every year. There are no accidents. What happens can always be traced to human error. Be careful out there.
