I am sorry but who is to say the kid was not being stupid on the bike and swerving into the road like kids love to do now a days. I work off of Broad Street in Matawan and these kids will ride in the street even if their is a sidewalk and swerve their bikes almost coming into the cars path without a care in the world like they are invincible or a 1,000 lb car can not hurt them. They also jump into the road without even looking to see if cars are coming. Kids are not exactly helping themselves when they do these moves. It was an accident and the kid was okay just be happy with that and stop trying to always blame pedestrians. I was driving down Texas road the other day and there is a bike path in which the bikers have to stop for cars. This couple was riding stopped for one minute and even though my car was coming this idiotic girl told her husband they could go anyway even though they had to stop. Bicyclists have no respect for drivers.

Without a doubt, this has become a mojor throughway and needs to be widened. My wife and I lost our passager's mirror two months ago because someones garbage can was protruded out too far when taking a turn and having another car passing. Yes, just widen the road. A child is now hurt. Just do it!
