I hope this will help teach people...

...that if they want to venture out on a 55 mph highway on a skateboard, bicycle or scooter, that they mark themselves with bright clothing and a flashing strobe. NOBODY can avoid you if they cannot SEE you. Many tragic accidents like this can easily be avoided by the use of prudent judgement. It is a very simple, unbalanced equation: Skateboarder, bicyclist @ 200 lbs moving 5-12mph vs. Automobile @ 4000-7000 lbs with a velocity of 40-70mph. Automobile ALWAYS wins. Protect yourself with a little common sense!

My prayers are out there for the victim, his relatives and the driver involved as their lives are changed forever.
