Another Bicyclist Dies In The Las Vegas Area
This time, a woman name Cara Cox who was riding her bicycle in Henderson in early October has succumbed to her injuries after she was in a coma.
A 74-year-old female driver had struck Cara. Here's the news report on Cara being hit.
Cara is now the ninth bicyclist to be killed by a motorist in the Las Vegas area in 2015.
About a month before Cara was struck, about 500 bicyclists met in Summerlin to hold a rally to spotlight the problem of motorists striking and killing bicyclists.
Every bicyclist I know can share a story about a motorist endangering their safety.
I never met Cara, but we bicyclists know that in many cases it could have easily been one of us struck and killed by a motorist.
For the life of me, I can't understand how society accepts killed bicyclists as just a part of the regular carnage out there on the roads.
It sickens me and I think about my mortality every time I start pedaling.
