Cycling accidents are a growing problem here in Kentucky and around the country as the quest to be healthier and preserve the environment encourages people to trade four wheels for two. More than 850,000 people bike to work each day, according to a cycling organization. This means that bikes and cars must coexist on the roads each day, although anecdotal evidence about injuries and fatalities suggest that the two groups are not living completely in harmony.
For most Kentucky residents, the day when we end Daylights savings time and “fall back” and hour is a welcome relief and an extra hour of sleep on the weekends. However, it also means that it gets darks at an early time, which means that we are still out running errands and walking our dogs when the sun goes down.
