A very small piece of justice today. The driver of the cement truck that hit and killed my class mate Tracey Sparling has been sighted. I have mixed feelings about this. While I don’t think the driver should be hung out to dry I truly wish more could be done. Perhaps I am more angry about this because the driver that killed Brett Jarolimek was not given a ticket. Perhaps all the wrong conditions came into play. I can’t help but feel angry today, it’s been a sad winter but it will be over soon.
On a better note we are all going to be a little bit safer because of this. Regardless of your feeling towards bike boxes I’m sure we can agree that heavy truck side guards are a good idea. And these guards will start being installed on at least all city trucks.
