Matt and Michele Miller and their son, Holden.

Matt Miller would be proud of his family and friends.

They have rallied to get the word out in the community about the dangers of left-turning drivers in the wake of Matt’s death in a bicycling accident in April. Matt was struck by a left-turning motorist and died the next day. He is survived by his wife and their 7-year-old son.

I recently happily did my part to help his family get the word out. I wrote a newspaper column about the very real dangers bicyclists face every time they put on their helmets and head down their driveways. We live at the mercy of those driving around us.

The column was published in the Sunday Star-Gazette which is our local paper widely distributed in the areas surrounding Elmira, Corning and Ithaca, NY. My column urged motorists to look twice to save lives when making left turns. That second look may save the lives of countless bicyclists, motorcyclists, runners and other pedestrians.

Remember this phrase as you are making your next left turn:

Look twice to save lives.

I hope you will take a few minutes and read the column.

And remember those five words.
