SYD: Six cyclists in hospital with serious injuries

Postby alexander » Sun Mar 16, 2014 1:53 pm

This is why laws need to change, and I'm sure this will just been seen as another "accident". I'm so angry about this.

I hope the 6 cyclists involved recover quickly, and my thoughts go out to them, their family and friends.

Already substantial discussion in a thread in General Discussion.

Mods, perhaps merge this?

I won't merge in case anybody comes here looking for discussion, I will lock this however.

Discussion on this unfortunate incident can be found HERE.
