Lethal weapons.

KQED sheds some light on a rare occasasion: a cyclist killing a pedestrian. There’s a lot do ponder on here, and I’m not about to turn this note into a lengthy op-ed. It’s simply worth pondering: if we are to make any long term progress where cyclists have more influence — and then more and more as riding increases — it will take a lot of diplomacy, and a lot of respect between the cyclist, big-metal-machine (car, truck, MUNI), pedestrian trifecta.

    The title says it all with this article, Rare pedestrian deaths exploited by bicycle foes. This is some great commentary on what has happened in the press in the wake of the Chris Bucchere case of cyclist killing pedestrian.
