To the editor:
Seven years ago, I was hit by a truck and seriously injured and very nearly killed while riding my bike on N.C. 179 between Calabash and Shallotte. Since then, there have been several patchwork paving projects, but nothing has been done to improve bicycle safety.
Cars, buses and trucks travel this road on a regular basis. The summer tourist traffic is often heavy and consists of many extra cars and drivers unfamiliar with our roads. The weekends of spring, summer and fall are also when there are the most cyclists on this road.
