It seems like every week there is a pedestrian, or a cyclist being injured or
killed while walking or riding on a street in Connecticut. Far too often the
driver just hits and runs. Each incident brings to my mind that safety is an issue
that must be discussed repeatedly and often.
I appreciate that injury and death is not a warm and fuzzy way to start a
FVTC newsletter, but we on the FVTC Board are just heartsick about these
accidents and determined to fight for improvement. One of the core reasons
that FVTC was formed nearly 40 years ago was to create a safe place for
pedestrians and cyclists to do what they enjoy: be active outdoors but away
from cars. That goal continues to this day.
