Sydney's killer featured on Aus 60 Minutes

...on a story about the dangers of using a mobile phone while driving.

This guy has been on Dr Phil and other shows? Is it tough to say he's gaining some fame from all this?

For those that don't know, former forum member, Sydney -- real name, Jim Price, aka Bourdreaux -- was hit and killed while riding by a driver who was texting on a mobile phone.

Seems there's been more public awareness campaigns about texting while driving recently (that graphic UK ad comes to mind). Hope it all has some effect, but I fear sydney's death won't be enough

I may be wrong but I thought that was part of what he had to do to 'compensate' the family?

One of the horrific accidents they tend to mention when this issue comes up is from here - 5 girls in a car, day after graduation - driver was texting the car in back of them - also a group of their friends, when she went head first into a truck. None survived. Sad day for the community.

Btw - Sydney was known as biker billy over at bicycling.com, a forum is dedicated to him and stacey
