Another Loss for Cycling, and A Story Illustrating the Imperative for Traffic Justice

Norman Benzing climbed tall mountains, sailed to far-off islands and bicycled
across the country -- twice.

Before 9 a.m. on Thursday morning, while he
and his wife strolled along the sidewalk on South Orange Avenue, a car jumped
the curb and hit him from behind.

Friends and family members of the
67-year-old man were shocked that he was killed while walking down the street.

See the Orlando Sentinel story here.

I didn't know Norman, but sometimes saw him and his wife riding their tandem in the neighborhood; they only lived about a mile away.
