Friends react to triathlete injured in drifting accident
We're learning more about the accomplished tri-athlete critically hurt after a crash in Tantalus. Island News spoke with friends of Lectie Altman, who was hit by a car Thursday as she was riding her bike up Tantalus Drive. We talked to those who describe Altman as an important part of the Triathlon community. Members of the Hawaii Bicycling League say that law enforcement must do more to protect cyclists and pedestrians. “Of course, a greater police presence up there would deter this illegal and dangerous behavior, so that’s an obvious first step,” Daniel Alexander of the Hawaii Bicycling League says. They also suggest “speed cameras” which are not yet legal in Hawaii.
