In wake of deadly April, cycling advocates call for safety boost

In the month of April, one cyclist was killed in a hit and run accident, and two others were injured after being struck by cars.

One bicycle advocate is saying enough is enough. West Bay Loop manager Richard McKee said it’s time to have a serious look at cyclist and pedestrian safety on our roads.

“It doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that people are getting hurt on bicycles. I know from taking our tours out and from the feedback from our customers up in west bay that it’s really dangerous. It’s happening too often, and the feedback is negative,” said Mr. McKee

He told Cayman 27 motorists need to put down their phones and concentrate, give cyclists more space, and slow down and be patient.

He said cyclists need to wear helmets and avoid riding on the wrong side of the road.
