    “Wet Weather Blamed:”

    I lived in the suburbs and relied on driving for six years to get virtually everywhere in all weather.

    I’m sorry, but weather is NEVER the cause of a collision. I mean never.

    Last Night’s Carnage

    Manhattan Cyclist Struck And Killed By Drunk Driver
    December 02, 2006
    A cyclist was struck and killed Friday by a man who police say was driving drunk on a Hudson River bike path.
    Police say 27-year-old Eugenio Cidron of Manhattan was heading home from a holiday party just before 10 p.m. Friday night, when he drove his car onto the bike path that runs along the West Side Highway. According to police, Cidron he was headed south when he hit a 22-year-old cyclist . . . .

    Pardon 2 comments in a row (technical problems). It is hard to fathom how drunk Mr. Cidron could have been that he could have misunderstood he was on a bke path. More likely he had become depraved and knowingly rode on the path for the “fun” of it. How do we prevent this tragic incident from bolstering statistics on the so-called heightened dangers of bike paths vs. roadways? For every drunk driver on the bike path there are 10,000 on the road, each as potentially dnagerous to bicyclists as Mr. Cidron.
