Memorial to a student killed in a collison with a vehicle while on their bicycle on MIT’s campus in Cambridge, MA. In a city with a campus such as this, there are bound to be run-ins between pedestrians or bicycles and motor vehicles. Sadly, early this year, this one ended in tragedy. There is really nothing gained by being in a hurry. So many times, on my way to work, for instance, I see a vehicle speed past me, weaving in and out of traffic, only to get to the next stop light quicker and have me pull up beside him a few seconds after. Slow down, look around. This goes, of course, for the bicyclists out there too.
