A car struck a bicyclist earlier this morning at the intersection of Rivera and 42nd Avenue. The bicyclist is in the hospital, and in my thoughts.— Gordon Mar (@D4GordonMar) February 1, 2020
Every one of these collisions is devastating and preventable. We must do more to make our streets safer. Lives are on the line.
Mar encourages constituents to email his staff with suggestions on improvements to the neighborhood's cycling and pedestrian infrastructure.
