Ok.. here is the scoop..

she was breaking the Az state law of riding on the sidewalk...

but in Tempe, Az, you "are allowed" to ride on the sidewalk.. but.. you must go the same direction of the traffic.. so yes there are directions..

Here is the working from Sec 7-52
Sec. 7-52. Riding on sidewalks or bicycle lanes.

(a) The city traffic engineer is authorized to erect or place signs on any sidewalk or roadway, prohibiting the riding of bicycle thereon by any person; and when such signs are in place no person shall disobey same.

(b) Whenever any person is riding a bicycle upon a sidewalk, such person shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian and should give audible signal before overtaking and passing such pedestrian.

(c) No person shall ride or operate a bicycle in any direction except that permitted by vehicular traffic on the same side of the roadway where the sidewalk or bicycle lane exists; provided, that bicycles may proceed either way where signs or pavement markings on the sidewalk, bikeway or bicycle lane appear designating two-way traffic.

(d) Any person riding a bicycle on a bikeway, sidewalk or bicycle path that is about to enter or cross a roadway shall yield the right-of-way to all traffic on such roadway. (Ord. No. 87.24, 1-14-88)

Looking this over, yes she was at fault.. It is a Tempe, Az law.

Here, give this to your GF so she knows the Tempe Laws, which seem to be different from everywhere else in the Phx metro area..
