How sad.  My sincere condolences to all of her friends and family.

I read the whole story and found this statement, which is incredible to me:

“Scottsdale police cited the driver of the truck, Fernando Jimenez, 50,
for not leaving a safe distance of at least 3 feet between the vehicle
and a bicycle when passing. The civil fine is up to $1,000 when a death
is involved.”

“…up to $1,000 when a death is involved”?  What good is it to have these bicycle safety laws if they don’t mean anything?
