Or that's what I hear. But then I see this story, in which a "crash kills driver, engulfs Castro block in fire;at least 8 vehicles burned." A Buick heading south on Castro Street in San Francisco ran a red light at Market Street, swerved into the northbound lane and slammed into a BMW that was turning right to go into a parking lot for the Castro Theater at 6:38 p.m.
Both cars burst into flames and the BMW was knocked into a parked car while the Buick careened into at least three more cars. The fire spread quickly down the line of unoccupied vehicles and several motorcycles. The BMW driver died at the scene. The Buick driver is in the hospital. Read more here.
I'll be bold enough to write that the damage from this one Buick driver was more than the cumalative damage caused by every U.S. cyclist in a year. What do you think?
