Groupon Supports Active Transportation Alliance to Honor Staffer’s Memory

Robert “Bobby” Cann was killed Wednesday, May 29th, as he was biking home from his job at Groupon in Chicago. Here’s what the Huffington Post reported (Posted: 05/31/2013  6:04 pm EDT  |  Updated: 06/01/2013  1:01 pm EDT) –

Cann was heading home from his job at Groupon around 6:35 p.m. Wednesday when he was apparently rear-ended by a silver Mercedes that had seconds earlier collided head-on with an Infiniti sedan…

… The driver, Ryne San Hamel, was charged with reckless homicide, felony aggravated driving under the influence involving a death and other charges in the crash on Friday, according to the Tribune…

…Streetsblog noted “the car-bike crash might have been avoided if this stretch of Clybourn had protected bike lanes.” Clybourn, however, is under the jurisdiction of the Illinois Department of Transportation; in February, IDOT blocked the City of Chicago from installing protected bike lines on such roads until it could gather data of safety…

Now, Groupon is offering subscribers the chance to help Active Transportation Alliance bring more protected bike lanes to Chicago through the purchase of a $10 Groupon benefiting the Neighborhood Bikeways Campaign. The campaign aims to equip Chicago and its residents with a 100-mile network of protected bike lanes by 2015.

The Groupon is available here.
