    I hope he is well and recovers quickly. Yet, again Pitt Co drivers hurt/kill another person on a bicycle. When will they make the roads safe enough for bikers and motorists to share and when will Greenville police start enforcing the legal requirements to ride with traffic, have lights on, stay off the sidewalks, one person per bike, and for kids under sixteen-wear helmets? Haven't enough people been hurt/killed this year for the police to stop ignoring the laws and start enforcing them? This lack of safety is one reason why people will be meeting & riding in a critical mass this Friday at 5pm at Barnes & Noble

    My prayers for this man's full recovery. It is so important to always carry ID on your person. If you don't want that get an ingraved dog tag type ID to wear that way if something happens your loved ones can be called.

    I think a sketch would be more helpful in identifying this man hit in the "east Sunday". The description above is a little generic.

    I think someone needs to rewrite the first line in this story.
