On Lake Shore Drive
traffic halted as for a funeral cortege when a woman driving a Chevy crossed the median at high speed crashing into three other cars.
Cycling has its drawbacks, but rarely involves fatalities of other travelers. In this case the driver of the Chevy was the only fatality, though seven others were seriously injured.
I cannot tell you of the indiscriminate slaughter of small animals, birds, deer, raccoons by the hundreds, turtles of all varieties, frogs, and related wildlife who give up their lives every day on the highways and byways of America as they seek to regain their natural corridors by crossing asphalt roads.
