HOWEVER, we notice that local advocates for bike lanes and pedestrian access regularly use the tragedy of roadside deaths as part of their talking points.
In this instance, a lady walking along the highway had other options but instead mistakenly chose a dangerous path where pedestrians aren't the priority. Rather than rework the entire highway system at the cost of hundreds of millions, it would be more expedient to remind locals that walking along highways isn't a preferred route and there are ALWAYS better options even if they take longer. Here's more on the tragedy:
