Family vows to keep cyclist's memory alive by pushing for safer roads

By Laura Osman, CBC News Ottawa, August 31, 2019

Idan Azrad's family did everything they could to save his life after the 27-year-old was struck by a vehicle while cycling in the city's east end earlier in this month.

Now that he's gone, they say they're going to continue fighting — for safer roads in Ottawa.

(...)Police are still investigating the crash, and there have been no charges. Whoever was driving the vehicle that struck Azrad, Lepp said she's forgiven them.

Earlier this month, Innes ward Coun. Laura Dudas said she wants to know whether changes to the design of Renaud Road might prevent further death or injury.
