What South Florida Cyclists and Drivers Have to Say to Each Other
This is a place that’s sunny, warm, and flat. It seems like it should be a pretty perfect place to ride a bike. It’s not.
Last month, the 36-year-old father, husband and amateur triathelte Aaron Cohen was hit and killed by a car while riding on the Rickenbacker Causeway. The tragedy revived a debate about how drivers and cyclists share—or don’t share—our roads.
We asked both cyclists and drivers to call in and tell us what they’d like the other to know in order to foster safer and more peaceful coexistence.
Thanks to all of the listeners who shared their comments with us.
Tell us here how you think drivers and cyclists can do a better job of sharing our roads.
