Letter: Watch out for kids on bikes

In the past 6 months, both of my kids have been hit by a car while riding their bikes. The first incident was in October. My son was riding his bike to school and a woman was turning into Hope Community Church and hit his bike and threw him into the curb. She was on her cell phone and made a U-turn in the church and took off. On Saturday I was riding with both my sons and we were trying to cross 80th Street at Hyde and the light was so fast we didn't get all of the way across and a woman bumped into my younger son. Luckily she heard me scream and stopped after just bumping him, but it could have been a lot worse. Please, please, please be more alert and watch for the little ones riding their bikes!
