The chilling letter biker wrote a harbinger of his death a few days before he was killed on the road
An enthusiastic cyclist killed on the road had written a chilling open letter resembling his tragic death, only four days before he was run over.
Sunshine Coast man, Cameron Frewer, 44, was beaten and killed by an ute during his normal morning cycle in Caloundra on November 5 at about 6:00 a.m.
The father-of-three had written the letter to express his frustrations about the police and not to prosecute drivers who failed to give enough space to cyclists while catching up.
I just felt the need to say my piece in the event that something happens to me (God forbids it). I know I'm not the only driver with these problems, "he wrote.

The advocate for the safety of cyclists on the road wrote an open letter to a number of officials who seemed to overshadow his tragic death a few days later.
In the detailed letter, obtained by Daily Mail Australia, Mr. Frewer reported the length he was going to be as safe as possible on the roads, including flashing lights, a safe & # 39; sign on his bike and camera's on the front and back.
& # 39; I am hardly the & # 39; stereotype & lycra, but I appreciate my life and I appreciate a law and a process that encourages people to use bicycles for whatever reason, & # 39; he wrote.
His death brings a whole new level of tragedy to the letter days later.
& # 39; The question I often ask myself is: & # 39; Will bicycles ever be regarded as vehicles by those charged with enforcing the laws of states? & # 39; Or are the excuses for bad driving, accusing guilty and irrelevant comments going through? & # 39; He wrote.
Mr. Frewer was an outspoken advocate for the road safety of cyclists and supported the adaptation of the road rules where necessary
