Unequal justice for cyclists

Here in San Francisco, a little over a year ago, we lost a fellow cyclist to road rage. You might remember when this tragedy occurred to Chris Robertson. You can read more about the tragedy in this article “Cyclist Run Over and Killed By Big-Rig Truck in S.F.”. And here is a site dedicated to the details.

Sadly, the driver was able to get away with minor charges for running down and killing Chris. In Chicago, cyclist Tommy McBride was run down by a driver under similar circumstances. Except, that in that instance, felony charges were filed and won.

Why can’t a progressive city such as San Francisco treat cyclists with respect and fairness?
