Saturday night's 11pm news led off with two unrelated stories of two kids killed on their bikes after getting hit by cars. It's so sad. One was a hit and run, hit by someone speeding through the neighborhood. This boy was 10. The other incident was when two 14-year-olds were riding on a sidewalk. When the sidewalk ended, they swerved onto the road and got hit by a truck pulling a back-hoe. Both easily preventable if the drivers were more cautious.
Today, I saw a man riding around Stone Mountain Park with a small child in a carrier on the back of his bike. Neither had helmets. Is it a law that the child should have a helmet? I told the man that he should, whether by law or just common sense.
I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening.
