A cyclist death and the resulting politics

It’s linked below by Alex L, but I think it’s worth emphasizing this item on how cyclist deaths are reported. Example: the Gazette account of the death of Clément Ouimet on Wednesday: Ouimet was “struck by a car that made a sudden U-turn near the Camillien-Houde Belvedere.”

The car did not suddenly make a U-turn. The driver did.

The Gazette story goes on about political promises to make the road safer but nothing is said about dealing with drivers whose delinquency causes injury and death.
