decides texting was "the problem?" That may have just been the straw
that broke the Camel's back." How does a 27-year old flaunt the law
like that and then nearly kills an innocent victim? I hope she recovers quickly
and this unfortunate excuse for a man gets his due behind bars, apologies to his
wife as well because his has ruined more than one life.
How is it possible that a criminal of this magnitude is allowed out of jail
after one night? Bail must have been extremely low. He should be required to
reimburse the victim for all costs plus whatever the value of the quality of

picked up by officers and the owner fined. Way too many people are driving
around uninsured. If a state had such a law and it was enforced, it might lower
the cost of insurance. Right now, through my insurance, I pay for uninsured
