In Cases which reflections about helmets or heavy foot on the accelerator were almost always clouded by legitimate flood of condolences and memories of loved one or friend who is no more?
In this case, however, we are faced with a fact that, sadly skimmed from the emotional component reserved for the "villagers", it is presented in all its rawness and puts those central questions at the heart of a tragedy that more people have termed “announced ".

And for how many meters the cyclist was dragged before falling on the asphalt. But beyond the safety of those who go by bike, unfortunately dead on the streets of the Belie Valley were many, crossed almost all the usual red thread made of speed and recklessness.
