Cyclists' rights equal to motorists'? How 'bout now?

From the Chicago Sun-Times. A Chinese teenager, an orphan adopted at two years old by an American single mom, is killed by a nearly 90-year old driver who "veered across the center line and hit them head-on." Her two riding friends are badly injured. The old dude was cited for improper lane use - not a joke, not funny at all. No criminal charges have been filed.

I try not to post links to these horror stories, but based on the recent statements of our Transportation Czar, these slaps on the wrist send a sad message. Same as the old boss, right?
