Oregon is contemplating a law to make killing a cyclist a felony when driving a motorized vehicle.
The local fear mongering ABC network has a poll where you can tell them how you feel about it: www.koin.com
Scroll down the right side of the screen and you will get a “Yes” “no” type of poll. There is also a complete article to go with it. I don’t think i need to tell you how to vote. Apparently Oregon is one of four states in which doing something such as this is not a felony.
The wording of the law is not tough enough but it is better than the current proposed penalty which is 12 months suspended license and $12k fine. Some fuck runs me over he/she had better be ready to spend some time behind bars. I have a big enough ego to think i am worth that. And i think you do too.
The one catch to the entire thing is they are looking at it applying mainly to those with “Habitual driving issues”. Fuck that. I don’t care if you are squeaky clean. You fuck up, run me over and take daddy away from his girls then should better be ready to grab a handful of prison towel bar and prepare for what you have coming your way.by
