I'm reading The Royal Gazette and see this story about this driver who a few years ago, knocked down this girl. The result was that he got a $450.00 fine. That's it.

That's it?

No suspended license, no rehab, community service, licence demerits or anything like that... just a small fine which goes into the court system and does absolutely zero for the victim or their family?

Absolutely pathetic. Apparently he was charged with driving without due care.

Seriously. Due care is not running through a yellow light. Not avoiding knocking down another human being. Maybe they'll look into adjusting the laws if one of the higher-ups or their children gets run over by something.
