A Most Tragic Accident

I always cringe when I hear about a bicycle or pedestrian accident. The latest high profile incident featuring Michael Bryant is no exception.

Road rage gone horribly wrong?! I’m sure a major investigation is not required to figure that out. Whether alcohol or other factors are at play here there is no doubt that this incident, among about 1,000 that occur every year, was preventable. It never matters “who’s fault” a minor faux pas on the streets is caused by. The key is minor driver vs. driver (or bike or pedestrian) mistakes don’t escalate into the death, trauma or damage to those who share the roads. Considering how this case escalated I hope people can recognize how fast things can go so wrong.
