'Why are people still getting hit?': Family demands action after cyclist is critically injured

By Luke Carroll, Ottawa Citizen, August 13, 2019

The family of a cyclist who’s in critical condition after a collision is calling on the city to do more to ensure safety for all road users.

Twenty-seven-year-old Idan Azrad was riding his bike to work down Renaud Road on August 8, a route he’d taken many times before, when he was involved in a collision with a vehicle.


Police said the situation is under investigation, but Lepp said more needs to be done to prevent this from happening in the future.

She said the city isn’t doing enough to ensure cyclists can safely travel the road, citing the numerous other incidents that have occurred in the past couple of months — two of which happened in Orléans including the July 23 crash that killed a 13-year-old cyclist.
