He was… he was just a beautiful soul and a beautiful spirit. I’ve been working on the Ghost Bike Project for over a year and a half and it’s never… it’s never easy. And this one was a whole… a whole different thing, man. This one was… this one was hard. </font></p> <p> <br></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"></font></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"><i>Speaker:</i> [01:33] Last Friday Eric Ng was biking on the bike path, probably enjoying a beautiful night ride, and a car for some reason, we don’t know why, was driving on the bike path. He was allegedly drunk from a party at Chelsea Piers, and he hit Eric and killed him immediately. And I’ve ridden on this bike path so many times and it’s just such a beautiful place to ride. And you feel basically safe, and imagine riding up there and suddenly seeing a car coming right at you, it just… it’s just so devastating to think about. </font></p> <p> <br></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"></font></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"><i>Speaker:</i> [02:08] You know the study that the Department of Transportation, Department of Health, Parks and Police all collaborated on show that protected bike lanes were the safest place. And now we’re slowly finding out that that’s not even safe. So I don’t even know where to recommend for people to ride their bikes anymore.</font> <br> </p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman">[music]</font> <br></p> http://transcriptdivas.ca/transcription-canada/
