I'm not sure of all of the penalties but it seems to me there's something wrong when a driver can collide with a motorcyclist that results in grievous injury or death through their negligence, yet they only walk away with what amounts to a speeding ticket. I can't find the story but I do recall a truck driver receiving a 3 month gaol term for running a red light and squishing a rider into street pizza. What exactly is the incentive to deter drivers from the SMIDSY? One life is changed or lost forever, the other is.........what exactly? Sure, there's bound to be some bleeding heart that will pipe up and say the poor driver has to live with it for the rest of their lives, big deal. The point of the discussion is about sending a message and deterring them from having to live with it in the first place. So let's not go there.
