"Witnesses told police the vehicle began to pass another vehicle on the right shoulder of the road". As I understand it, a driver pulled onto the shoulder to pass slower moving traffic on their right, and struck the bicycle rider in doing so. I thought that was illegal (just like speeding). The speed limit is currently 45 MPH all along 3005 but is flagrantly ignored. It seems like this was an avoidable tragedy. Driving is dangerous and accidents happen even when a person is paying attention and doing their best. Aggressive or unlawful driving makes things much more dangerous. We would all do well to obey the law and stay focused on textbook driving.
