Bike Fatalities Raise Concerns About Road Safety

Two local residents, Ivin Scurlock, 41,  and Alexandra Simou, 40, lost their lives in a hit-and-run incident near Southern Village last month.  North Carolina has one of the worst rates for bicycle and pedestrian fatalities in the country.  

Host Frank Stasio speaks with Aimee Argote, a local musician who found Scurlock and Simou; Laura Sandt, senior research associate with University of North Carolina’s Highway Safety Research Center; Lauren Blackburn, director of North Carolina’s Department of Transportation's Bike and Pedestrian Transportation Division; Debbie West of the East Coast Greenway Alliance and an interim board member of Bike Durham.
