Was the woman turning left without a signal ……. was the cyclists following too close and missed a signal …. who knows ?? I see people that can't do simple cash resister tasks at a store ( finding cash … understanding the cashiers request … getting a credit card out of a purse or wallet AND getting it to work ) AND THEN they get into a auto and DRIVE unto the roadway...……. SCARY !!!
