Cuomo To Turn Truck Mirrors Requirement Into State Law

[B' Spokes: Filed under news you will not see in Maryland as it's always the cyclists fault when trucks turn right across the cyclist path.::( ]
Governor Andrew Cuomo will sign a bill into law this week that requires large trucks to install special mirrors so they can see pedestrians near blind spots.
The bill will require trucks to attach convex "crossover" mirrors that should help the driver see around the truck better. Those mirrors will cost truck owners and operators a few hundred dollars each.

Momentum for the bill grew after a Brooklyn boy died when he was hit by a truck while riding his tricycle in Brooklyn.

Police said the driver never saw the child. .

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
