Cyclist killed last night @ Mass Ave and Vassar

Tanker on wrong side of the road. Photo from CBS, link below.

Looks like the tanker is on the wrong side of the road. Looking @ the intersection of Massachusetts Ave & Vassar St, Cambridge, MA 02139 with Google maps street view, it appears that there are many traffic cameras overhead, which should have recorded the incident. This is an awful tragedy and my thoughts and best wishes go out to the cyclists family. Seems pretty clear from the photo of the tanker on the wrong side of the road in this article that it is the motorist who is at fault in this collision and killed a human. Unfortunately, with the lax roadway laws in Massachusetts, this driver will most likely receive merely a paltry fine and a bump on his insurance premiums. It is time to pass a vulnerable road users law.

Full story, so far.
