On Wednesday, a driver on Combie Road says the sun was in his eyes and didn’t see the bicycle rider. CHP Officer Justin Barnthouse says the accident was reported near the entrance to the Lake Center Shopping Center. Officer Barnthouse says a 64 year old man from Crescent Valley, Nevada was turning into the parking lot when a bicyclist hit the front of his 1997 Toyota.

The 62 year old bicyclist received non life-threatening injures. The bicycle sustained severe damage. The accident remains under investigation.
It is well overdue for a fix. All bicycles on any highway road ave street and even in some other non-specific locations need to be licensed and insured. They cause damage and do not obey the traffic laws that are meant for all vehicles on the pavement. This does not exclude bicycles. Bicycle riders do not obey the laws.
They need to be enforced and cited when braking any law.
Would like a reply from Keith Royal and the CHP on this.
