BC Coroner Services Probes Cyclist's Death on Causeway
The BC Coroner's Service probe into the death of a 61 year old North Vancouver cyclist on the Stanley Park Causeway is a step in the right direction when it comes to reducing the number of bicycle accidents in Greater Vancouver.
According to the June 26, 2013, edition of the Vancouver Sun:
" The coroner is investigating the death of the North Vancouver woman who was a regular bike commuter on the causeway. While riding on the narrow sidewalk on Saturday, May 25, she collided with pedestrians and was knocked onto the road... She was hit and killed by a bus heading to Vancouver...."
Prior to the announcement of the coroners probe the Vancouver Parks Board approved a motion to improve safety measures on the Stanley Park Causeway.
According to the Vancouver Sun Park board commissioner Constance Barnes indicated:
" improvement could include installing a barrier between pedestrians and cyclists and motorized traffic similar to what has been done on the Burrard Street Bridge."
It seems apparent that the publicity surrounding the tragic death of the cyclist on the Stanley Park Causeway has focused attention on the issue of cyclist safety in Great Vancouver.
One can only hope that something good will come from this unfortunately event.
