Mexican drivers are the worst in the country, especially women drivers. I hope she never gets out of prison.

Wow, how tragic. I'm not looking to argue, but I didn't see anything about the driver being Mexican.

"Volkswagen driver Shaina Carter Fernandez"
Obviously her Spanish surname is not her heritage...
Can't imagine other than looking down at a cell phone how one could not see a Model A...
Very Sad, regards to his wife and grandchild, and family...

sad day indeed. in this instance i don't think a seat belt would have helped. shame it happened and feel bad for the family.

i plan to light up the rearend like an amber flashing Christmas tree. i don't care how ridiculous it looks but if im seen from a mile away making people think "what is that?" all the better to me. i have asked the local state police this and while yes it is technically illegal to be driving with amber flashing or strobing lights on given the circumstances of the slow speed of the model AA he and his fellow officers wouldn't pull me over for it. they see it as me being an even bigger hazard to the public without them on as our law says a vehicle only requires the number of headlights/taillights/reflectors etc as it left the factory with when it was made. So in our case one brake and taillight. BUT since in the black and white text its illegal for me to have strobing amber lights so they arent going to write or sign anything saying they told me that...
