A friend of mine was driving a car this last week. He was on a 2-lane road, stopped to make a left turn. A pickup rearended him, pushing him in front of an oncoming minivan, and he was killed. The pickup then did the hit-n-run thing and police are currently looking for it.
This was in the Dallas area. A WEEK after it happened, there was a small article in the Royce City newspaper about it. That's all. A guy gets killed in a hit-and-run and Dallas news doesn't even blink.
The moral is, yes, that's bad when cyclists get killed, but then there's a 100 times as many motorists that do. At least that is rare enough to make the news.
