Target: United States Congress
Every year at least 750 cyclist are killed by a motor vehicle. A vast majority of drivers are never even sited for the accident, not to mention the death of an innocent person. This leaves many family members to pick up the pieces and try to move on without one piece of justice to ease the pain of the death.
There are probably many more numbers than research shows, but considering there are many accidents that do not get reported unless there is enough damage done to the vehicle.
This petition is to change the laws of traffic accidents that result in the deaths of innocent cyclists due to the negligence of drivers of motor vehicles.
As of today, there are no laws or punishment other than a traffic citation for such a life changing event. Please sign the petition so I may take the necessary steps to take this to Congress for stiffer penalties.
