No, this is what happens when drivers use poor judgement. The cyclist had a legal right to be on the road. This driver, had she used better judgement and shared the road with the cyclist, would have slowed down, waited a minute or so, then passed in a safer zone. Instead, she will have to live the rest of her life with the fact that she killed someone. Was it worth it?
