    Default Crash at 11th and R NW in DC 9/7/16

    Contractor digs up road, diverts car traffic into heavily used bike lane on R NW without following the DC Safe Accommodations Act. Driver runs into cyclist. Everyone is shocked. Reports from Twitter are that the cyclist is ok, bike is not.

    Both 11th and R are busy bike thoroughfares. I live on R west of there and there is a constant stream of cyclists pretty much all day (and much of the night too). 11th has become a preferred route into downtown, along with 15th. Hope this cyclist is OK.

    +1 on the book.

    Don't think this was a right on red issue, though I agree that they should be illegal in DC.

    Actually got mixed up with another crash post (which WAS a RoR issue) and realised that after posting. That's what happens when you try to listen in on a conference call and surf BA at the same time.
