    Its really a shame.The roads are the worst i've ever seen in many states.What do i mean? I hardly ever see any bicycle routs on the sides of the roads, no shoulder,narrow lanes so if theres someone on the side of the road and someone is heading towards you oh oh. Maybe we can boost our economy by making our roads more safe and making them wider.

    Im all for getting news in a hurry, but why show pics of the vehicles (BEFORE) you are able to release the names...just makes us all a wreck. A small dark truck and a white one is very very common... how many ppl do you know that drives either?? Sometimes the media is just a little tooooo quick for me. Hope both victims are ok.
