    "Police say there investigation has revealed the woman was not at fault in the accident, and probably wouldn't be facing charges if she hadn't fled the scene. "

    Two posssibilities here:

    1 She was drunk.
    2 She's a complete moron.

    Either way, she really has no business being on the road. She should never drive again.

    I hope they nail her to the wall for leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

    As far as the article goes - the accident was the biker's fault.

    The only knock on the lady is that she fled. If she had stayed she would not have a chance of going to jail. Hit & run is a big deal, so she'll see some jail time.

    I doubt that she'll lose her license forever, or spend a long time in jail.

    I don't know about that. How do you know this guy wasn't drunk out his mind, listening to a walkman and ran a red light right in the car's path? Cars suck in a larger, more holistic way, and there are way more bad drivers than good ones... but cyclists have to take responsibility for their actions too.

    the second you pilot a several ton vehicle you better be god damn sure you can handle everything it's capable of. a cyclist hitting a cyclist rarely results in death, a cyclist with a trailer striking a cyclist rarely results in death.

    **** cars

    no, people who drive are responsible for vast amounts of unquestioned violence and should be held accountable

    I'm sorry, but if you go leap out in front of a car and get FUBAR, that's your problem, not the drivers'. If the driver is driving like a ****ing ******* and runs you down, it's their problem. See how that works?

    You're right I don't understand. Why should someone else be to blame for your irresponsible actions?

    Feel free to go test your little theory anytime, tehz. Run some red lights. I'm thinking the judge is gonna tell you the same thing while you're in your body cast.

    right because the legal system actually works.

    should i link half a dozen articles of drivers being at fault for cyclist deaths and getting off completely or with minor moving violations? or do you want to take a look yourself

    I already know that **** happens. And it's ****ed up. That does not, however, give you the right to ride like a ****ing idiot with impunity. If you cause the crash, you're at fault. If they cause the crash, they're at fault, and should be held liable.
