Basolisk I'm not disagreeing with you that what she did was dangerous and idiotic. And again, as I already said, she did endanger other people. I just don't think it should be 1 STRIKE and you're out. Everyone makes mistakes and even with what she did at least give her the opportunity to repent and make up for it somehow is all I'm saying. Don't punish her with $800 per month insurance premiums for 6 years (or whatever the length of time it stays on your record). You make it sound like she is a bad person and she isn't. She made a mistake. She shouldn't have to pay for it by paying close to $10k a year for insurance when we only make TOTAL $56k per year. That is slightly outrageous. Maybe that's an different type of answer. Maybe the penalty should be based on your income. For people that make $200k a year what do they care? For people who make as much as we do OR LESS how is that fair?
I'd also agree with you if it was possible for her to take public transportation. Unfortunately we live in Port Perry and she works in Markham. I've looked. It's close to impossible for her to catch a bus and make it to work in time. I think she would have to get up at 4am and she might make the connections.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion though. That's what these message boards are for.
