Cyclists are worthless, and that's an attitude reflected by the law, so all a driver has to do is say "The sun was in my eyes" and they walk free from court after killing a cyclist doing nothing wrong.
Whoever hit Andrea is a lowlife.
Some riders use the pavement to avoid psycho drivers.
Those two statements are not mutually exclusive.
