Letter: Heartless drivers avoid cyclist

Please, pay attention on our roadways, look out for each other, and don’t drink and drive.

To the editor:

On Thursday, October 16, at 5:12 p.m., my bicycle-commuting wife was riding up Springfield Road when she was struck and hurled onto the road by an impaired driver, with a suspended license and uninsured vehicle.

Shaken and in pain my wife managed to get up. It was rush hour and no one even stopped to see if she was OK—people actually drove around her.

Have we become so distracted, self-absorbed and disobedient that we have lost our sense of community, and what it means to be a good member of society?

Please, pay attention on our roadways, look out for each other, and don’t drink and drive.

Pete McCall,
