“It only takes one other vehicle to slam into that person, or for that person to fall off and then be crushed by an oncoming vehicle,” Brandon Sancho, Cape Coral Police Department officer, was quoted as saying by NBC. “They could issue a citation or they could just use it as an opportunity to educate the driver,” Sancho added.
