    I think the “Gets Off With Citation” lead is rather misleading. The person was appropriately charged with drunk driving. That is not just a ticket, as is implied with stating they got off with a citation.

    If you click on the “Driver Kills Man on Bike in Danville” link, the headline in SFBay is actually “Car kills bicyclist in Danville”. No mention of it being a self-driving autonomous car, otherwise I don’t know how a car can kill a bicyclist.
