The Rhode Island Department of Transportation will conduct a detailed safety analysis of all 200 intersections where bike paths cross roads, the director of the state agency said Wednesday.
The study comes in the wake of the death of a young cyclist, who was struck by an automobile Tuesday at the intersection of the East Bay Bike Path in Bristol and Poppasquash Road.
Bike crossings should be raised so cars have to slow on approach. #bikeri

As I suggested on Twitter, bike path crossings like this one in Bristol should be raised, forcing motorists to slow as they approach them.
