I hope the pedestrian recovers fully from his injuries.

I agree about the dangers of cyclists riding on sidewalks. I saw someone doing that on Dundurn yesterday and thought, "oh buddy, you're taking a risk" (he was riding against traffic). But what drives me crazy is the reporting of car/cyclist accidents and the line, "The cyclist was not wearing a helmet". Why is this important? They don't report whether the driver was wearing a seat belt. Are people really going to accept the injury or death of a cyclist because they weren't wearing a helmet?

Wording of accident reports matters.
