    The driver was only cited for hitting pedestrians (including a child) in the crosswalk?! You’ve got to be kidding me. This horridly weak sort of punishment has got to stop if we are ever going to make our streets safe for non-motorists. This driver should automatically have their license suspend for a year and forced to do community service with pedestrian advocacy groups like Walk SF (or the MTA). Or, they could even serve as the decoy for a police sting where the cops send somebody into a crosswalk and then pull over the drivers who don’t yield. I guarantee that would help this motorist drive more safely when they get their license back in a year.

    Agree completely and perhaps have his car impounded for a year at his expense and a permanent non erasable mark against his driving record.

    Why stop there? Tack on twenty years of hard labor and a $100,000 civil money penalty!

    Let me guess. You don’t have a young child.
