“Perfecto Perez, 84, of Chicago, was crossing Main Street from north to south about 8:20 p.m. when he was struck by Kim.”

As Vegan Linda noted”Driver behavior will not change until the law takes pedestrian/cyclist lives seriously.  It is disgusting that this driver may only be charged $75 for an illegal act which resulted in ending a life.  It is completely insane that the charge for a cyclist riding on the sidewalk excedes that of someone texting while driving a motorized vehicle.

My thoughts and condolences go out to the family.  How tragic.”
