A young woman was killed last year on a Laurier Avenue cycling lane.
The sheer volume of cyclists mixing with traffic on Laurier has caused collisions with automobiles. Many of those accidents appear on YouTube as the cycling season progresses right now.
Mayor Jim Watson after the young woman was killed called for a study of the Laurier Avenue cycling lanes.
