If they build it, we will ride it.

Until then, drivers need to do a double take and start looking further for bikes... instead of only directly in front of them for pedestrians.

Not that it sounds like having bike lanes or much of anything could have been done to avoid this particular tragic string of events. The truck could have obstructed the drivers view either way.

To me it seems unlikely the average cyclist would ride next to cars/trucks traveling at highway speeds as opposed to the empty sidewalks on Uppers James and most major mountain streets, no matter how much you decry it's legality.
