Bicyclist knocked down on highway

A Belize City resident is hospitalized after being knocked down earlier today while riding a bicycle along the Northern Highway.  Shortly after eight o’clock this morning a man was hit by an oncoming vehicle whilst heading in the direction of the city.  The accident, which occurred in front of Budget Rent-A-Car near mile two and a half, left the front wheel and handlebar of this mountain bike mangled when it collided with a dump truck traveling north.  News Five made several attempts to ascertain the identity of the victim; however, we were reliably informed that the cyclist was not transported to the K.H.M.H. for medical treatment, nor has the police department issued a release on the accident.

    You will always hear pedestrians or cyclists being hit by vehicles especially in Belize City and you wanna kno why?? because Belize City people are too darn facey… they feel like the own the entire street…they dont pay attention to the flow of traffic…they take their own time to ride or walk however, wherever, whenever they feel like it with no regard for the vehicular traffic around them…they dont follow the traffic safety rules and you the driver must have nothings to say about it…its frustrating..and i kno alot of other people out there would agree with me on this…..

    @ Redbwai,I agree with you bredda,they think that they are superheroes or something.Then when you give them the way to pass they take their own time and give you a mad look as if they want to do you something.That is why i don’t give them way anymore because they are to damn ungreatful.They don’t respect Siht.They are always trying to beat a car to get infront and then when they get knock down they blame the driver.It is not always the drivers fault.Look at the round about comeing into the city from the western highway,they walk around it as if it is a pedestrian crossing.One day someone will be turned into a pancake,then i bet you they stop walking across it.You have higschool studens doing it as well,then again they will take their own time and watch you while they pass.A lot of Belizeans are just stupid and ignorant.
