It's a small moral victory to hear that some people are fighting for us cyclists.
Peter Wilborn is a good friend and an outstanding advocate for bicyclists based in Charleston, South Carolina. We at Freeman Kevenides Law are very proud to be a part of the Bike Law Cycling Collective with him. As I see it this is more than a small moral victory. This shows drivers that if you kill a bicyclist not only will you face litigation, but you may face jail time. It is encouraging to see this tragedy addressed with seriousness it deserves.
I agree with you it is great that law enforcement is finally taking incident like this seriously. But to me, it's still a small moral victory unless a guilty verdict is deliver and upheld on appeals. It hard for me to say, Justice is serve, without a conviction.
