SD cyclist killed

I haven't seen this posted, I apologize if it was already.

A few days ago a 15 year old was killed when he hit a truck parked illegally in a bike lane. All I know about this is what is in the linked article, but according to the article the SDPD didn't even issue a citation to the driver of the truck.

So sad.

And until cops like the one in the article pull their heads out of their ******** a*ses, it's not going to stop. Pathetic.

It always makes me furious to see. I imagine it will be much worse now.

I think i'm going to start calling in all the violations I see. Enough people being enough of a PIA, well.

I hate reading that stuff. It makes me worry about my fourteen year old commuting to school everyday. I catch him every now and again making a left turn without first adequately looking behind him. Scary.
