Quite the paltry sum for manslaughter. The drunk driver who hit me 3.5 years ago got 30 days in jail and a couple thousand dollars in fines on top of having to pay for an ignition interlock device on his car. Todd Kidwell also had two separate moving violations after killing Glenda Taylor, but the judge wouldn't take them into account because of the plea deal.yeah, only 60 days, but $375 in fines and court costs.
Because unfortunately this is the way quite a few people feel. The response by Karen Heath was a good one but I doubt it won anyone over. The best you can do is to be courteous to drivers, and hope that it rubs offLove the comments at the bottom of the article that blame MS Taylor for riding her bike on the road.
Why does this genius mentality appears in ever comment section for every trial?
I agree. I would say that based on conversations I've had, a large percentage of the American public believes that roads are solely the domain of cars and that anyone riding a bike on the road is suicidal. These are people who like to repeat nonsense arguments like "drivers pay roads, cyclists don't and therefore shouldn't use roads" and "that's what sidewalks are for".Because unfortunately this is the way quite a few people feel.

No doubt. This piece of debris will get sued for millions. In Virginia they can garnish over 50% of your salary (hopefully in KS too). Fat boy gonna have small paychecks for life.This isn't over for the driver. I assume that Ms. Taylor's family will sue the driver in a civil action. Sh!t will get real there.
