Nearly 30 cyclists have been killed in Orange County during the past two years, according to Orange County Register databases. At least two, David “Cat” Pullen and Christy Kirkwood, were killed by cars swerving into bike lanes.
Many more have been paralyzed, lost limbs or otherwise injured. An alarming and growing number of cyclists are afraid to use legally sanctioned bike lanes – marked lanes made using tax dollars.
The choice is clear: Does our fair-weather county give up its world-class bike lanes, or do cyclists and drivers work together to share the road?
