    Horrific photo and great video go along with this Daily News report about fatal speeding and reckless driving on North Conduit Avenue. Photo in the print edition was actually worse, if anyone cares to turn to pp. 12-13. Then there’s this story about a drag-racing fatality on Ocean Avenue. Vehicular manslaughter charges filed.

    My favorite funny fantasy would be a bright yellow recumbent trike bikeshare along the protected bikeway on Brooklyn’s Ocean Parkway!

    “”They both had the light. She was crossing the crosswalk, but he was making a left-hand turn when he it her.”

    Yeah, they both technically “had the light,” but the victim had the right of way. Subpoena the driver’s cell phone records.
