    Wouldn’t it help to put these stories out earlier while peoples minds are more fresh? Especially when it comes to a hit and run.

    This overtaking on the inside (actually ‘undertaking’) absolutely infuriates me. It clearly demonstrates what the perps have between their ears. And the thing is , they don’t even try to do it safely most often coming out of nowhere and barreling by at more than twice the speed limit when there’s only 4 feet of space.If caught they should lose their license for life.
    What happened to this unfortunate lady is one of my worst nightmares.

      Hear, hear. It is total disregard for others and the rules of the road. Hoping for safe recovery for the woman.
