Riding Heaven's Highwayson the grand tour
Another Drunk Driver
This is getting harder and harder to take...we lost a Bakerfield rider not long ago to one idiot and now this happened to a neighbor last weekend while ridding a Tandem with his son.
A Senseless Tragedy at 2009 Grand Tour
I read about this happening out on the PCH but I didn't know they were riding on a tandem. 1:30 AM and a drunk driver who fled (but was apprehended). Very sad...
Sad indeed but they were on separate bikes not a tandem or they both would have probably been killed.

What scares me more is the prospect of getting hit by someone texting while driving in broad daylight. This will become a more common occurance as time goes on.
Just because it isn't illegal doesn't make it right.
It is illegal here in Kalifornia but the fine is just a handslap and it doesn't even count on your driving record.
