Yes,...DUI almost twice the legal limit! Such a sad situation. Boot Road has sections where it is very dangerous for bicyclist, but nothing excuses driving while impaired. It's wrong to judge anyone. So I will just leave it at that! Praying for all involved.

if you are a driver or a cyclist you have to pay attention at all times, no texting or blah blah im late too work.... proper lighting and gear you will be seen, i ride everyday it is a shame that drivers think it is to hard to push the brake one inch or turn the wheel two inches to aviod taking some ones life. or that bikers run stop signs and red lights, pretty much you have to be careful out there on roads whether via bike or car.... ps. dont use highbeams it really just blinds the cyclist you cant see a thing. if there was no dui i would say it was just unfortunate.... but...........
