Opinion: Is It O.K. to Kill Cyclists?

David Duane provides examples of cyclist fatalities going unpunished to argue that social and legal norms haven't adjusted to the growth in cycling as a legitimate form of transport that needs to be protected: "There is something undeniably screwy about a justice system that makes it de facto legal to kill people, even when it is clearly your fault, as long you’re driving a car and the victim is on a bike and you’re not obviously drunk and don’t flee the scene."
