So, if she had gotten off the bike and been walking when the driver of the SUV struck her, who would have been cited?
If she had been riding in the street, would the accident have been averted?
I won't argue that her citation is warranted, but, that the drive was not cited makes no sense to me. That drive would have struck anything in his/her path, a pedestrian, cyclist, automobile, whatever.
The drive certainly shares (if not owns) responsibility for this accident.
