17 people killed biking; 74 people killed walking; 29 people killed by cowardly hit-and-run drivers so far in 2016. More cyclists have been killed in the first 8 months of 2016 than in all of last year. Hit and run drivers have killed more people so far this year than in all of 2015. The number of cyclists killed this year by automobiles has increased dramatically, even when the cyclists have the right of way. It is important to speak up and increase our pressure on the Mayor so that the city really invests in safety.
