    Good to see the offender has been ticked. But we have heard very little since Captain Paul Rodgers was run down by a careless driver. How long does it take to figure this one out anyway ?..Truck on the wrong side of the road with a motorbike underneath it.?..Come on lets get the operator of that truck off our roads and behind bars where he belongs before he kills another innocent citizen.

    Maybe if the rcmp checked her cell history a text or Facebook update probably happened the same time the poor guy was struck...how else could you just "run" a stop sign?

    Stop means stop. This 18 year old motorcyclist has paid a hard price for the undue care and incompetence of this young driver. I believe not only should a ticket be given but this person should also have to compete mandatory driving training. I hope this person reflects and learns from her mistakes before people are killed.
