There is a tragic story last week out of Virginia. Apparently a 15 year old was riding his bicycle on a busy road when a car approached him from the rear.
According to published reports, the car mosed into the oncoming lane to pass the cyclist. The young boy, however, then turned left in front of the car.
According to local police , the young cyclist was wearing headphones as the time of the accident. Unfortunately, he died from injuries sustained in the accident. I have read about accidents like this in Washington State too. And I have seen a lot of cyclists ion city streets, on Lake Washington Blvd, and in the parks wearing headphones.
The obvious but sad lesson is that wearing headphones while bicycling (and, for that matter, while running near traffic) is a recipe for disaster.
