Ugh, I'm very sorry for your son's experience.

I was an avid bicycle commuter for 10 years and the "Right Hook" is the most dangerous and common error of judgement a motorist can make. Despite my rage on the subject, I'll concede that it is probably an error, and not an intentional and premeditated murder attempt (one certainly does assume the latter in the heat of the moment, however).

Turning left in front of oncoming traffic comes in a VERY close second.

We need a MUCH better system of driver training.
