A Danbury law firm has donated 10 bicycle safety signs to the City in memory of a partner, who was killed last year in a bicycling accident. Cramer & Anderson made the donation as a tribute to David Burke, who was killed near Bantam Lake on his 63rd birthday, March 15, 2016. The City Council accepted the donation at their meeting earlier this month.
The signs caution motorists that by law, they have to stay 3-feet away from bicyclists on the road.
Law firm partner Dan Casagrande called it a small gesture, but said if it can help avoid another tragic bicycling accident it will be invaluable. They have made similar donations to other towns in Western Connecticut.
Casagrande says the signs are yellow and black, which is a warning, and people can't get a ticket fro disobeying the signs.
They will be placed at locations around Danbury that the Public Works Department and others deem appropriate
The value of the donation is about $275.
