This sickens me

Cyclist murdered by driver who was downloading ringtones. The Driver was fined a $1000 and has to go to driver's school.

"The 25-year-old former Champaign resident, a University of Illinois mechanical engineering graduate working for Caterpillar in Peoria, died on Sept. 8 from head injuries he received Sept. 2 when Stark hit him with her car because she was downloading ring tones to her cell phone instead of paying attention to driving."

In case any of you are interested Little Miss Ringtone has a myspace page! 

She kills a man, then blogs about her dating life. 


Here are some other email addresses that might interest you:

Julia Rietz
State's Attorney
statesatty(at)co(dot)champaign(dot)il(dot)us

Richard Klaus
Judge
circuitct(at)co(dot)champaign(dot)il(dot)us


I hope that you will all take a moment to also write your public officials.  Cyclists and pedestrians need more legal protections on the road.  If she had been drinking instead of downloading ringtones she would be facing life in prison.
