Tonight, there should be one man thanking his lucky stars that he is still alive.
At 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9, at the intersection of Corral Hollow and Valpico roads, I almost hit a man on his bicycle who ran the stop sign going north. I was trying to make a left on Valpico Road, and I did have my turn signal on and the right of way. I stopped in the intersection after I already had started to go because of that man running the stop sign. He did not even try to stop at all, even when I almost hit him.
Why do people on bicycles do not stop at signals and stop signs? This is not the first time that I have had this problem. But that night, the man had an “I do not care” look. I was more concerned with damage to my car than that man did.
Like I said, this is not the first time I have had problems with people on bicycles. Something does need to be done about this problem before someone gets injured or killed.
