Angry Driver painting nails runs red light, kills cyclist

Driver painting nails runs red light, kills cyclist: cops :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Metro & Tri-State

Again, why even mention that she was wearing a helmet?

There are 1000 things riders can do to be safer. Wearing a helmet is well down that list for anyone that already knows how to ride. Getting crippled or killed from some a$$hole painting their nails is grounds for a jail sentence and a civil lawsuit with massive restitution. Only those punishments will help stop this crap.

Sad for the rider and not to p!ss off the women, but was this some kind of karma thing? Not that anyone needs to die needlessly by the hand of another, but painting nails, whew. I wonder how many times the rider has been caught behind the mirror of her own car farding? Sad indeed.

This is another unfortunately true story that makes me a little nervous every time I'm on the road....such a shame.

Sad but true, a clear case of a "hidden agenda" if there ever was one.

Was the "motorcycle driver"... "ejected from the vehicle?"

Well a couple of days ago we had a guy driving his lexus next to a big rig while they were both negotiating a two lane freeway onramp.

The big rig tipped over and squished the Lexus. When it's your time it's your time.

True enough, true enough. I am reminded of the fragility of life daily -- part of the occupation.
