Injured bicyclist offered settlement from Texas county

Longitudinal cracks, sewer grates running parallel to the lane of travel, potholes. These are the hazards an unwary cyclist may discover on his regular route. Mostly these are well off the edge of the roads. All the more reason you should assert your right to the road rather than crowd over into the gutter.–Corrie
