Last night a BU student was hit and killed by a collision with an MBTA bus at the corner of Harvard and Brighton Avenues in Allston. The incident is under investigation by Boston and MBTA police.
This is the second bicyclist in Boston to die this year. It may be time to take another look at safety rules and bike routes. Does it make sense to put them on main roads, or would it be better to divert them to side streets where traffic is slower and cars don’t dominate the road as much?
