LAS VEGAS -- It was a picture perfect Sunday in southern Nevada. Although some weather changes are on the way for this week, spring is just around the corner.
Traffic officials say every year the rate of deadly crashes begin to climb as the weather warms up. They want to get the word out now to share the road.
"Today would be our first time out," Michael Fusaro said on his shiny new bike. "In fact, we just picked these up yesterday."
Samantha Godbey says biking used to be her only mode of transportation.
"Here I would not do it," said Godbey. "In San Francisco I commuted downtown everyday, but here I would not feel safe in the city."
On Tuesday we saw this year's first cyclist fatality in Metro's jurisdiction
Police say 48 year old Joseph William Galterio rode his bike through a stop sign at the intersection of Charleston and Pecos. He was the 18th person to die on a Metro road so far this year.
"The thing that you got to realize, is it doesn't end here," said Sgt. Richard Strader of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's Fatal Detail. "We have grieving family members that have to deal with this. The only way we can stop that is everybody do their part."
Strader says while that crash appears to be the bike riders fault, many occur when drivers don't give bicyclists enough space while passing. He says it's the law to give them at least three feet whenever you possibly can.
"If you get a ticket for that, don't be surprised. I'm just warning you right now, that's something we're passing on to our patrols and our traffic officers. That if you see this law being violated we're going to write the ticket, because we don't want the senseless death.
Godbey says she wishes bike riders and drivers would just follow the golden rule.
"Follow the same rules of right of way, and be considerate of drivers, and I just ask the same of them. That they go in to it expecting everyone to be nice to each other and keep each other safe."
