"...Santa Fe police say the driver of the Jeep appears to have been at fault in the crash and will likely be cited. Police said the driver pulled out in front of the motorcycle, which was already in the intersection..."
These things happen all too often, and Andrew's name will be memorialized this winter at the annual bicycle-motorcycle rally at the State Capitol, where we lament that we cannot do a better job of making the roads safer for all of us.
We need Vision Zero. Now. The details need to be worked out. The philosophy, that roads should be safer for users, needs adoption, way ahead of "Level of Service" or speed.
I've not heard of any plans for a memorial or anything. Holler if you do. Meanwhile, let's be careful out there. Especially those of us on two wheels.
