A Step in the Right Direction

There was not a bicycle involved, but a motorist that caused a crash that resulted in a death may be charged with vehicular manslaughter. Only a misdemeanor in CA, but it's another step in the right direction for holding people accountable for negligence.

Now the really sick thing is that vehicular manslaughter carries the same monitary fine as littering... $1000.

While littering is ugly, it seems to me that a human life is "worth" a lot more.
