Article in Metro section on Cyclists Killed.


Tonight is the memorial for two cyclists killed recently in Manhattan. Looks like one publication finally got it right in stating that one of the victims was hit by the car door and not that he intentionally ran himself into it. Just this morning on NPR it was the other way around, thus “blaming the victim.” So much for that “Look” campaign. However, most of the press does report that the driver of the vehicle that “DOORED”, Mr. Smith on 6th Ave. did recieve 3 violations. I doubt one of them was, “Failing to have your car door open so a cyclist could ride into it.”

Here is the publication that got it right…

This article is in today’s Metro, from reporter Amy Zimmer.
