    • Karma, get a bigger STABLE SHOVEL & SHOVEL YOURS ELSEWHERE. Ever heard of being courteous driver ????? NOT!!!! Yes I’ve heard of bicycle rules – even used them. The article does not state officer was on high priority call SOOOOOO, he could have taken 3 seconds out of life to look beyond computer & hood & be courteous or swing a little wider to share road. It is illegal to ride bikes on sidewalks and white line on right side of road is not supposed to be driven over by cars – it’s for bicyclists to have a “lane” to ride in. Sooooo, karma, check with tractor supply for A BIGGER STABLE SHOVEL AND SHOVEL IT & YOUR SELFISH ATTITUDE ELSEWHERE. By the way if your neighbor’s house is on fire & they are in it will you still be looking out for yourself first & foremost????? Typical selfish “me only” attitude that you have!!!!!!

  • If you ride so low that you are not visible to the traffic your riding with you cant blame anyone but yourself for getting ran over !! Was he afraid the treatments might involve a blood draw?? And its obvious that the Sheriff is a better man than those who “bash” him. 🙂

    • I’ve encountered MANY. RECUMBENT BICYCLES in county, cities, etc. Most do have reflectors, flags, etc.AS A DRIVER YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO OBSERVE NOT ONLY WHAT’S IN FRONT OF YOUR HOOD BUT ALSO WHAT IS AROUND YOU. IF YOU, Karma, DON’T WANT THAT RESPONSIBILITY GIVE UP YOUR LICENSE.!!!!!!! If you deserve to be bashed, you earned it by a stupid selfish act.
