This comment leaves me wondering when the fence goes up around Danville and Alamo. The lead story yesterday on the news was that non- whites are out birthing whites. OMG. These interesting questions should be left on the floor. The dead man is not guilty simply because he road a bike in front of a Mercedes. At the end of the story who is the criminal? What does it take to leave a man to die alone on the concrete? Maybe the fence could keep you all in too.

This is clearly a tragedy, and a crime to leave the scene of an accident. However, the operation of a bicycle at night also has some requirements for safety, including a headlight and tail light so that this type of accident is less likely to happen. The rules of the road apply to cyclists as well as motorists. (Ask any of the 30 or more bicyclists who have received tickets in Diablo for running stop signs.) We may never know if a costly mistake was made by Mr. Hy.
Clearly, the cowardice of the driver, in not taking responsibility for his/her actions is an abomination. I hope they are found and brought to accountability!

Clearly, Old Danvillian doesn't know what he's talking about. Professional Responsibility classes in law school do not teach you that if you can get away with it or convince someone to believe you, then it's right. What hogwash.
