Dear Lexus Driver,

Dear Lexus Driver,

Hello, my name is Arlyn and I’m 39 years old. My wife and I have been married for eighteen years and we have two wonderful children; a seven year old daughter and a five year old son. I have many great friends and enjoy spending time with my parents.

Have you ever seen It’s a Wonderful Life – that Jimmy Stewart movie where he gets to see what the world would be like without him? I wonder sometimes what my family’s life might be like if you had killed me today.

Now, I know you would not choose to kill me. You’re probably a very decent person, maybe with a family of your own. But you did choose a moment of inattention while driving your car that could have resulted in my death or grave injury.

Please keep an eye out for us cyclists. We’re people, just like you.

Best,
Arlyn Asch
Father, husband, son, friend and cyclist
