SAN DIEGO, California (5/18/2013)- According to an article in an online San Diego news source, readers wrote numerous letters about the apparently dangerous State Route 56 bike path in Carmel Valley. Since the month of May is “National Ride Your Bike to Work Month,” cyclists are questioning which routes are safe and which ones are not. Specifically readers have cited State Route 56 as needing its guard rail and fence fortified. Caltrans did not respond to the complaints due to a lawsuit filed against them from a fatal crash that occurred about two years ago. There have been several deaths on the State Route 56 bike path, including the death of bicyclist Nick Venuto, a 40-year-old father who was killed by a swerving SUV.
“Bicyclists have to be five times more cautious when riding, even though they are subject to many of the same traffic laws as vehicles,” states West Seegmiller, owner and founder of The Seegmiller Law Firm.
