An unfortunate story in The Record this morning about a hit-and-run that left a cyclist in serious condition.
The vehicle and motorist left the scene of the accident but this mirror did not. The traffic investigator, Waterloo Regional Police Const. Rhea Spitzig narrowed down the vehicle to a General Motors minivan. If you see one that’s missing a passenger-side mirror, Spitzig wants to hear from you. Note the licence plate number and call the traffic office at 519-650-8500, ext. 8856 or 8793. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org
I really dislike this stretch of road on University Avenue. It’s wide, straight, lacking bicycle lanes and has long ramps to and from the highway. Vehicles have higher speeds along this section and it feels like bicycles don’t belong. This stretch definitely needs to be redesigned for people, not just for vehicles.
