Be Careful Out There ! !

I’m sure most of you are aware of the bike / automobile accident that happened on July 10th at the corner of Richter and Clement in Kelowna.  If you wish to see a video of the accident please click here.  The lead member of a cycling group was struck when a car turned right into her path as she was proceeding straight through the intersection.  The driver of the car was fined for failing to yield at a green light.  The cyclist was taken to hospital for treatment of her injuries.

You can draw your own conclusions from the video.  Certainly the driver of the car should have seen the cyclists and yielded to them.  However cyclists should be be ultra cautious when proceeding through intersections, especially when there are cars beside them.  We can’t assume that drivers will always see us and do the right thing.

With the extra heavy traffic conditions currently in effect, please be extra careful out there.
