When you see a bike on the road …

So, you are driving on the road and you see a bicycle, what is your first thought?

Do you think of how much fun you had as a kid on a bike?

Do you think of the last time your were on your own bike?

Do you think of your own kids on a bike?

Do you think something else?

Please, when you see a bike on the road, remember that they are—someone's son or daughter—someone's wife or husband—someone's mother or father.

Please treat not only cyclists but everyone on the road like they are your own family, because next time you read about something horrific on the roads, it could be someone you know and love.

Keep us all safe! We are one big family!

    Is the KFC drive through still going to be open after slowing down for this cyclist?
