Cyclist killed by drunk driver in Chicago
Story: DUI driver killed a cyclist who was coming home from work, did 5 years in the Marines, and was 28. Since this is Chicago and the driver was the Purchasing Manager for Stroger Hospital (a county run hospital) he will probably get off with probation and community service as I am sure he is connected.
I read these and realize I could very well be that cyclist because of how bike UN-friendly a lot of Chicago still is. Granted there is some great infrastructure but it is basically in select areas and not in areas with lower income where there is a lot of people cycling because that is there only mode of transportation.
