    Please be on the lookout for bicycles, motorcycles and pedestrians! I have several close calls a month when I am riding. Not stopping at stop signs is a big problem. Driving past the stop sign w/o looking for people on the paths is another problem. Obeying the rules of the road would save a lot of grief.

      Agree. And stopping at stop sings for both riders and drivers is paramount.

    It’s sad to read about more injuries on Loudoun’s roadways. Sending prayers to the victim. I’m hoping their injuries truly are minor. And I hope authorities apprehend the hit-and-run suspect in due time. The terror imposed by the autocracy must end. On a brighter note, Happy Women’s History Month Loudoun!
