The tragic death of Ita Lapina, killed by a bicyclist while on her morning walk in a park [“Woman killed when bike hit her put others first,” Metro, June 14] should be a warning to all pedestrians who have had similar narrow escapes. How many of us come close to being hit by bikers who, unlike Ms. Lapina’s bicyclist, don’t give warnings as they speed past us?
