Wrong Way Cyclist Dies from Injuries

Posted on Jun 19, 2012

The cyclist was riding downhill in the northbound lanes, and a turning pick-up didn't see him.

Bicyclists are supposed to ride with traffic, but he was riding "on the wrong side of the street," State Police said

My deepest condolences go out to the family members and friends of the cyclist. Sadly, this shows why riding the wrong way on a bicycle isn't just illegal - it's very dangerous. Automobile drivers expect vehicles on the road to be going in the correct direction, and particularly when making a turn, bicycles going the wrong way just aren't visible to them.
