Bicyclist – car crash
On October 16, a woman on a bicycle hit a vehicle when it pulled out in front of her. The crash occurred in the eastbound bicycle lane at College Parkway and Market Street. It was covered by News Carson City, but apparently not by the Nevada Appeal. This intersection has already been recognized as dangerous in the Carson Bicycle Routes Wiki, but ironically the greater hazard was thought to be for westbound bicyclists using the combined sidewalk/bicycle path. Though there is a stop sign at this location, I routinely see people just barely slowing down before making the right turn from Market St to College Pkwy. This is a problem all over town, motorists thinking that a few seconds saved by not stopping is more important than the lives of pedestrians and bicyclists. I don’t know whether the driver of the vehicle stopped at the stop sign or not.
