Boulder Cyclist hit @ 17th and B-way

"A 16-year-old Boulder High School student was hit by a car Thursday night while riding his bike through a flashing crosswalk.

The teen, Balazs A. Horanyi, who was unconscious when emergency personnel arrived, was expected to be released from the hospital today, Boulder police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said.

Ive always thought those crosswalks on broadway were dangerous. More often than not you press the button and a car in one lane slows down, while a car in the other lane blazes through. This is why I dont even enter those crosswalks until I make eye contact with both drivers, or can clearly see that they are slowing down. Be smart, and never assume anything.
