Boston Bike Safety: 1 Intersection, 4 Hours of Observations

December 11, 2012

Boston police are still investigating the bicycle crash that killed Boston University graduate student Christopher Weigl. His death last week was the city's 5th bicycle-traffic-related death this year. It's highlighted the tense, split-second decisions bikers and drivers face on the road, as they compete for narrow space.
