Bicyclists Side-Swiped in a Hit and Run

When it rains, it pours. Diana Moskovitz of the Miami Herald reports that two bicyclists were struck yesterday on State Road 84 in Davie. The negligent driver side-swiped the bicyclists and continued driving. Both were sent to the hospital and fortunately were not killed. Interestingly, some reports have said the bicyclists were off-duty Miami police officers. More to come if and when more information is available.

    I read an article online this weekend about the wife of the West Virginia governor who was hit by a car while riding her bicycle with her husband and his security detail, no less. Luckily, her injuries were minor. Also, a lengthy article on msnbc dot com about how U.S. lags in bicycling infrastructure, what else is new? I hope the two injured cyclists are ok. I wonder how that critically injured cyclist on the MacArthur Causeway is doing?

    I swear, South Floridians think it’s optional to stop after hitting someone.

    Hope they’re ok. I hate reading this stuff as I commute by bike often…

    I think bicyclists should start carrying guns. If a car comes to close, shoot. It’s self defense!

    Too bad judges wouldn’t view it that way. I wish at least we could start treating the car legally like a weapon as it is treated in some other countries such as Mexico. If you hit someone, it’s the same as using a weapon on them. That’s what this guy who mowed down pedestrians in Spain did.
