    1. What a horrible, horrible tragedy for his wife, children, and klal. B’DE
      Yesterday here in Manhattan we had a young medical professor from Cornell killed by a stolen car while riding a bike, perhaps we should reconsider riding bikes on streets, it is simply not safe with all the crazies all over the world.

    2. Unfortunately people don’t follow the instructions on bikes. And some drivers have no clue on safe driving to watch bikes . This was during day. I worry more about nights have seen many pedestrian with reflectors at night in Monsey and Some in Monroe. was wonderful see them watching For their life
