News seems light this period, which may be a good thing. So far as I can determine, no pedestrians or bicyclists were killed, or injured badly enough for it to show up in the Sacramento Bee. The search page I look at is http://blogs.sacbee.com/crime/archives/type-of-crime/traffic-accidents/.

News summary 2012-05-21

The Streetsblog family of blogs (NYC, LA, SF, and Capitol Hill) has Daily News posts, and for the NYC, The Weekly Carnage. I find these useful for picking up interesting information I’d otherwise miss. Though I probably only average one click per list, it is still useful. Maybe this would be useful for Sacramento. Please let me know if it is useful, and please pass along articles that you think I might miss. The only news sources that I regularly follow are the Sacramento Bee and The Sacramento News & Review, but even there I sometimes miss things.
