on this day last year a man I don't know died cycling in my neighborhood

Toronto, 2019.05.16

Like me, Doug Crosbie was a cyclist and a father. He died when a truck made a right turn from westbound Dundas onto Jones. It's a route I rode twice later that same day, and that I've used for my daily cycle commute. Our streets are crowded and our bike lanes–like the one that Mr. Crosbie rode that day–are too often just a line of paint.

41 pedestrians and cyclists died in traffic-related collisions last year. We can do better Toronto!
