  • Well, who wouldn't hit her?

  • The contribution from DUI and immigration laws is worth thinking about.

    Johnson says. LAPD spokesman Smith confirms that finding hit-and-run killers is "absolutely" a higher priority than finding those who flee scenes where the victim or victims survive

    California adopted a law that was supposed to increase the punishment for hit and run resulting in death, but it was construed to apply only when leaving the scene contributed to death (victim would have lived if the driver had stopped).

    In the long run you'll have to insert your license in the car and you won't be able to drive until the DMV computer verifies you have insurance, don't owe back taxes, etc. And they'll have a record of who was driving where and when.

    Although Villaraigosa and Beck take credit for low levels of violent crime that today match those of the idyllic 1950s, it seems impossible that half of all auto crashes in 1956 were hit-and-runs, or that thousands of people were being left injured, or worse, on the city's streets each year.

    I could believe it. Roads were relatively dangerous 60 years ago. You have to compare increase in miles traveled and population with decrease in injury and fatality rate. Either might dominate.
  • any chance it's because of all the illegal mexicans with no papers?
  • I wonder what percentage of those hit and runs are done by illegals...
  • Hit-and-have your dad virtually pimp you out to make money?
  • How the hell do you run in that traffic? I love LA as long as I can stay out of cars.

    You can't say that, it's racist. Whether it's true or not.
  • If I lived there I'd get a suv with steel bumpers and rock bars on the side. Come at me mexicants.
  • If your car detects a collision, it should auto-record the data of the hit in a log that's then sent to the police with the date-time and GPS coordinates. That would be the end of hit and runs.

    We're already 90% of the way there.

    Not a bad idea. GM has that capability with OnStar although I think it has to be severe enough to deploy airbags for the alert to go out. But if you made it sensative to 15MPH impact or something that could work.

    That is a world I one day want to live in.

    Living in the Midwest, I'd say at least a good third of our drivers are probably on the road illegally. Last night at the local bar this was literally the topic of conversation, and out of the 14 people there 6 were not allowed to drive and the other few were probably too shiat-faced.

    Out of the few accidents I've been in one of them was being hit by someone without insurance. And another accident where a dude hit me, jumped out of the car and ran away on foot. I had my buddies come get the car and we took it out mudding and farked car thing up hardcore. After our fun we gave it too some high school kids and I never saw it again.

    I read a statistic once that said between the hours of 2am-6am nearly 1/3 of the drivers on the road are legally drunk.

    Are you saying truth might be racist? Then I am against truth.

    0%, they respect our laws.

    Considering there's a chance that car was stolen in the first place, getting your fingerprints on it and then handing it off to some idiot kids who can identify you might not have been the best judgement call.

    Good God I hope so.

    "Truth" is an interesting description of something that can't be proven.
  • If you get a second DUI in California it'll cost you about $25,000 and 30 days in jail. If you kill someone while driving drunk it's no longer manslaugter in Ca., it's murder two - 25 years in jail. As terrible as it is to say, I can see why someone wouldn't stop.

    So there is no "true" God?

    If this is going to turninto an illegal immigrant thread I am dragging God, guns and cyclists in too.
