  • What can I say Justin? The holidays seem to bring out the worst in drivers? Here’s more outrage: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/26164101/detail.html

  • I think you’re right…scary stuff. The Vail case is just insane, on a lot of levels, but is nothing special–par for the course in terms of traffic justice trends.. The worst bit is that this guy’s main line of defense is that he has sleep apnea (with the ‘new car smell’ defense thrown in for good measure), that can make him narcoleptic, and extremely dangerous as in this case…yet the sentence involves license suspension for only one year?????

    Shouldn’t it be obvious to anyone here that he should never, ever be able to drive again?
