"Thanks for the update Bill, what an amazing positive outlook. Question : Is he taking this to the civil court for loss of income? A multi million payout case will do more for safety than any of the hollow words and lack - of - action from our…"

"Real sad Bill. I was disappointed to see the article that talked of the charge had a lot of info on the car but didn't even mention the status of the injured rider"

"His partner will be very unhappy with the process & no doubt the outcome. How can you not be charged with a crime when you hit anything from behind? It is essentially a king hit or coward punch. The Police need to agitate for a complete revamp…"
