I ride a lot of evening and weekend organized club rides. Every one starts with someone stating that signs, lights, etc. are to be followed. And then many of us go out and ignore some if not most traffic laws. Wednesday night a rider was hit by a van where the road the group was riding on crosses a 4-lane, 55 MPH road. He went right past the stop sign and into the vans path. I wasn't there but I've heard the collision wasn't pretty and he's still in ICU. I've seen way too many riders do things like this and only by luck was there nothing coming. Now, I'm not preaching to stop at every sign when there's not a car in sight, just to make sure you look first and be sure.
I just want to keep all my fellow riders on the road so let's be careful out there.
