Not allowed to drive for 5 years? What about never allowed to drive again? This is hardly justice. Yes, he is getting punished, but not enough. We need to make sure that people like this don't get behind the wheel of a car in the first place.

So the guy is allowed to plead no contest to felony drunken driving and avoid a just sentence for his outrageous behavior: Driving while drunk, striking and almost killing a cyclist riding in the bike lane, AND trying to flee the scene. What a travesty.

Byciclist are a menace to car drivers every where on the Peninsula, they do not respect any traffic signs and they bike without any regard to any traffic rules and regulations.
Crystal Springs Road is a haven for the byciclists riding like maniacs and being a daily hazard to every driver.
It is interesting that in this case nobody was there to come forward and testify honestly what happened. The story spun out of control and everybody added something to it and at the end nobody knew who was at fault. Everybody was on the side of the byciclist.
Moreover, the newspapers and the reporters write one sided stories they never look at the accident in a detached manner. It is always the byciclist who is innocent and the driver who is at fault.
Maybe we the drivers should make an alliance against "dangerous byciclists' on the roads and start a campaign against the byciclist who are riding without any rules and endagering everybody on the road.
What about it?
Lets start a discussion about the byciclist on the roads what is your experience?
