Charleston South Carolina•Death on Cosgrove Bridge

Article does not say if the victim was using a tail light.
The collision took place before 5:00 AM , so it was dark.
Police aren’t saying if the driver was speeding.
Entire right lane should be converted to Bike Lane, IMHO.

That's tragic. I've lived in the area for ten years and the awareness of driver's is getting better. Before it was non existent.
I try to ride in groups or around my neighborhood or the islands. Daniel Island is also fine since there are fewer bubbas in pickup trucks trying to prove a point.

I vacation that area and was married in Charleston. I mainly ride the FB area as that is where we mainly vacation now just south of Charleston. I do not know the circumstances around this incident but I see cyclist here in central NC all the time wearing dark cycling clothing and no rear blinking light to offer some attempt to warn approaching cagers you are on the road. I tell most getting into the scene to buy bright cycling clothing and a rear light for the best attempt at visibility.

Certainly tragic for sure.
