    Very sad indeed. Why isn’t the name of the driver that was cited, published?

    Accidents happen, people accidently run red lights. The fact that their mistake took someone’s life is most likely devastating to the person who caused this accident. Why do you need their name Evil Twin? Are you really that evil? Will you hunt them down and harass them for an accident? You have issues.

    Whatever you guys think there. . .Having your name, and maybe even your picture in the paper when you cause an accident, particularly a serious one, just might lead people to think a bit when they drive. That isn’t gossip, it is just common sense.
    There are consequences for all of our actions. And quite obviously, there are not serious enough consequences, to make people take responsibility for their actions behind the wheel.
    That, Mean Momma, is my main issue.
