misdemeanor traffic ticket

So, you drive along in a pickup, text message your girlfriend at 6.45 AM, run over a cyclist, kill him and here's your problem:

A misdemeanor traffic ticket, because " we don't think it was intentional"

Another quote: The driver could face a charge of careless driving resulting in death, Stanton said. Under Colorado law, the teen could face up to a year in prison.

But don't count on that. He's likely to walk with a small fine...

By the way, that cyclist had been hit by a car before. What are the odds?

I guess I'm safe right now, cause I'm not even riding in the basement. Just some good old long working days and skiing on the weekends. Day number 3 coming up sunday.

Heel erg dik...
