He genuinely had a big kind generous heart. It's unfortunate this accident happened to a person who was just walking home from the grocery store.

Better to take an extra few seconds to creep up on blind spots than to lose what you have once you've killed/injured someone.

I can't say enough about how sorry I am for yet another death on this horrible, speed-street of fear. Because people can not (police) themselves, I hope the city will make changes to this street. At the very outset, sync the lights PLEASE. I take this road everyday, and without fail, everyday, I think to God "please make them stay on their side of the road". As I said in the Mr. Clement story and in Susanne's story; 35th needs to be TWO lanes with a tree'd median down the middle, and sync the lights. This would slow traffic; give homeowners a "chance" to safely pull out of their driveways and make room for a safer place to ride a bike and cross the street.
