Robert Vigorito is a retired neuroscientist, and a long time triathlete and race organizer. He was seriously injured in a bike accident in Bonita Springs, Florida.
There were a number of other bicyclists who witnessed the auto driver violate the right of way and cause the accident. The investigating officer recognized that the motorist was at fault. But she did not issue a traffic ticket.
When drivers are not held responsible for the auto accidents they cause, it shows a lack of respect for bike riders. Here is a recent article from the Fort Myers newspaper on this crash.
