Let’s hope that our efforts in 2012 and 2013 lowered this number…

677 cyclists and 4,432 pedestrians lost their lives on the roads of these United States in 2011. While these are vastly low numbers compared to the number of vehicular fatalities (32,367), any fatality for any road user is unacceptable. We can do better, we WILL do better. It takes all of us working together, living together, yielding the road when required, being good stewards of our environment and doing our duty as road users to accomplish this. Have a safe holiday season!
