I remember Larry’s friend getting the most beautiful flowers for his ghost bike. It still saddens me to this day that we can’t slow people down enough to care about others. RIP my friend, I’ll never forget you!
I’m saddened to see the troopers have ruled it an accident but charges are pending! This is already a bad use of wording! This must change!
It seems like yesterday. I was contacted by a gentleman that stated he’d been on a ride and a woman on the ride had been hit and killed. He wasn’t sure off the details of the investigation but wanted to get her a ghost bike and place it somewhere it would have the best chance of lasting. I built it and meet him at Rutgers Corner Store there in Dahlonega, Ga. We chatted with Seth, the owner of the site, and he said he’d be honored to have Shelley’s ghost bike mounted to the front of the store. So we mounted it to the post. I still pray for the Chesnut family and her riding friends. Please be safe all.
This is becoming an epidemic in our society! We license literally most of the drivers that apply without getting them to understand the penalties for distracted driving/killing someone due to this! Or wait maybe there really isn’t much of a penalty for KILLING SOMEONE WITH A CAR! WE HAVE TO CHANGE THIS BEFORE IT WILL GET BETTER! No ONE HAS SEEN THIS MORE THEN ME!
Others might but we’ll never forget you!!
If you read the article, it goes sadly, as these articles normally go, ut then the word weighing whether to file charges is disturbing to me. If you’re going to drive a vehicle, you must do it responsibly or face all responsibility for your actions! We don’t need no one else’s opinion! Simply issue citations for all laws broken and levy the penalties. If they aren’t in accordance then the system needs to be updated!!!
