The penalty for striking a human with a vehicle

Apparently it's zero. Someone was driving, struck a pedestrian!, continued to her home without stopping. According to the Gazette:
  • For driving "without due care" - the sweet saying that means very little: $250.
  • For failing to stop - was there a stop sign? not sure what this entails here: $250.
  • For failing to report an "accident" - meh - zero, apparently. Demerit points it seems.
  • For failing to give her address - that must relate to the above two items - zero but demerit points again, perhaps.
  • For HITTING A HUMAN BEING WITH HER VEHICLE!: nada.

Complete and utter joke. Disgusting.
