Everyone speeds on Juanita Drive in Kirkland | LETTER

The reason that the bicyclist was recently killed on Juanita Drive was because he had to avoid cones that were surrounding a hole in the bicycle lane. As he moved out to avoid the cones the pickup driven by an 18-year-old could not have avoided him.

Perhaps the Kirkland police ought to get serious about ticketing and removing cars that are parked in the bike lanes on Juanita Drive and other areas before someone else perishes.

Everyone speeds on Juanita Drive because King County never patrolled it - it was a dead end in their jurisdiction. Hopefully the Kirkland police will step up and make the roadway safer for everyone.
