This week the Boston Globe ran two editorials on making our streets safer for bikes and trucks to share, following the tragic death of cyclist Meng Jin in a crash with a truck near the Museum of Science. I co-authored this op-ed with Boston Councilor Michelle Wu and Becca Wolfson executive director of the Boston Cyclists Union. The Globe followed with an editorial in support of requiring — not only encouraging — all trucks to be equipped with side guards, which are effective at reducing serious injury in crashes between trucks and vulnerable road users.
