My warmest regards to those close to him.
And be darn careful around cyclists.

"[Drivers,] be darn careful around cyclists."
Were cyclists the intended audience, there would have ben a comma preceding the word "cyclists." and with that formulation, the sentence would have been almost illegible. (Almost.)
It makes much more sense with drivers being the intended audience.

' "[Drivers,] be darn careful around cyclists.' "
Well, I hope so. Nevertheless, as a cyclist, I never stop hearing this directed to me, as if I am the one who needs to take care.
I know that who did that (telling me to take care) only wants good, but we need to alert and point where the real danger is.
Keep riding ;)
