Biker Killed in Larksville, PA

http://citizensvoice.com/news/w-b-bi...ille-1.1548091

Bike rider was on the wrong side of the road and didn't stop at the sign. Driver didn't see him. It's tragic.

I see a lot of people in this area cruising the wrong side of the road, going against traffic or riding zig zags across streets. Hate to see this happen and it's the second one this year.

Wow, a 1-year-old baby was while riding in his stroller in NYC and the shooter hid out in the Wilkes-Barre area. That is tragic. But where's the story of the cyclist killed in Larksville?

I'm sorry for everyone involved. The cyclist was behaving improperly, and the motorist is going to have to deal with killing someone for the rest of his life. It's a sobering reminder that we need to obey the rules of the road, including having proper lighting between dusk and dawn.
