San Francisco "Ride of Silence" hopes to raise bike awareness

In the past several years, most metropolitan cities in the United States have started adding bike lanes on in-town roadways that provide safety for the ever-increasing number of people using bicycles for transportation. Though slower to develop on the east coast, most progressive cities in the west have long provided designated bicycle lanes for their citizens. As these changes take place, however, motorists are not typically educated in bike awareness, and this disconnect continues to result in bicyclists' injuries and deaths in San Francisco.

Fatal 2014 crash involving Lyft leads to wrongful death lawsuit

In the early morning hours of Nov. 1, 2014, just after a Halloween party ended, a couple ordered a Lyft ride to get home. It was a stormy night, and after they got into the Lyft, they were soon on a freeway. During their trip, the Lyft driver swerved out of the way of a stopped vehicle, but the sudden movement caused the driver to lose control of his vehicle and collide with two trees. One of the male passengers, only 24 years old, was killed in the resulting crash, and the man he was dating suffered injuries in the wreck too, requiring him to stay in the intensive care unit for three days.
