After organizing the Safety Civilians demo last week calling for safe
roadways, I was hit last night coming home from the Airport. My first
crash in Vermont, after five years of daily cycling. Go figure. A
nineteen year-old from Enosburg pulled out from the Cinema 9 on
Williston Road and put me on his hood. Fortunately, it was a slow
collision, busting only my headlight and my break cable (in other words,
I am fine). The teenager was upset that I seemed intent on calling the
cops. He offered me money if I pretended that it didn't happen. Of
course the cop questioned if my light had been working at the time and
told me Williston Road was a dangerous place to ride. Hmmph.
Shay Totten from Vermont Times is interested in doing a story next week
to follow up on the Safety Civilians' actions. Let me know if you have
a story to share and wouldn't mind being interviewed. Thanks.
