Comments
  1. “… careless driving resulting in injury of a vulnerable road user [sic] …” — reject any law or charge pretending to confer special status on one pedestrian over another; charge her appropriately or let her go. Colorado fails to protect the lives or safety of pedestrians and cyclists from its murderous motorists; its defective laws play a role.
