Letter to the editor — September 23, 2016

Dear editor,

Thursday night a child riding her bike was in a crash with a person driving a car here in Iola.

I choose these words carefully to provide clarity about the responsibilities that adults take on when they sit down behind the wheel and those children take on when their feet hit pedals. One is driving a vehicle typically weighing 3,000 pounds or more, and the other is extremely vulnerable.
