Dear Sheriff Gee and Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office,
On behalf of SWFBUD (South West Florida Bicycle United Dealers), I want to thank you and your staff for arresting the drivers who were connected to the death of bicyclist Robert Niedbalec, a Temple Terrace resident who was killed while he rode his bicycle in a bike lane on Fletcher Avenue on a Sunday afternoon on Feb. 13 at 1:46 pm.
As you know, Hillsborough County suffered a string of tragic bicyclist deaths and an important element is arresting and prosecuting motorists who engage in reckless and lawless behavior that lead to bicyclist deaths.
I appreciate your efforts and please continue your hard work and committed efforts. Please pass our appreciation to the State Attorney's Office as well for their efforts.
All the best,
