One thought on “Minor injuries for 12-year-old hit and run victim”
  1. It’s unbelievable. I’m seriously considering giving up biking altogether. It’s my main mode of transportation, and has been all my life, but the motorists are winning. Especially the reckless a-holes who text and drive, run cyclists off the road and hit them and then flee. I hate the idea of not cycling anymore, but at this point, the risk I have to take to do it is above of what I find tolerable. I don’t drive without a seatbelt, and I don’t cross the road with my eyes closed. Cycling around here feels like doing just that.
