  1. Poor lady. That’s really sad.
    The crossings for the trails on this street Gentry Town need to be lit up. Press the button then the crosswalk lights up and blinks alerting drivers. We also need another stop light on JD between Somersville and Silverado. It’s a race way! Too many people have died on JD.

  2. 8:30 in the damned morning! No excuses. While bicyclists sometimes are their own worst enemies, it’s up to us who drive motor vehicles to be extra vigilant and pay attention. There is NO excuse for this. No one needs to go as fast as we do on any city street.

  3. All those comments are very true, speed should be slowed down there, however, if it were up to me I WOULD NOT BICYLE on such a
    busy street. There are many other streets to choose. Make safe choices!!
