    6 days latter?
    An amber alert goes out that hour, I am guessing we are trying to mimic the lack of penalties placed on bad motorists or the lack of laws to protect anyone not in a motor vehicle?
    Here is the AZ central report? No report of a hit run, good thing they got that she was wearing a helmet. I love how “car strikes bicyclist”, some how they drive themselves maybe that is why the car didn’t stop?.

    Not even a reckless driving or failure to yield to a pedestrian in a cross walk.

    Hope they find the coward who ran away. I have been almost run over twice head on in the last 30 days.
    Of course what is considered safe by many motorists, may reflect only how safe they’re going to be, and not how safe someone else is going to be by their actions. This lack of concern is backed up by most of our law enforcement, media, public, and politicians.
    How safe do I feel?

    These things need to keep getting publicized until people are worked up enough to make some real changes in AZ.

    NYC city has a lot of people worked up and it does little good not to mention lots of peds and cyclist.

    I think we need a federal level of protection.

    Run through a stop sign, lie about it, kill a person and get a misdemeanor.
