Don't pay the fine, you do the time. Also, since he's white, there will be no outrage. :(

That's what the exact words of the Judge according to his family members.

I think it's the conditions in the prisons that need to be addressed, not the penalties for bad driving. These crazy drivers absolutely should be sent to jail. They are completely nuts. Drivers like this are killing innocent people every day on our roads.

Texters are the worst.

At least Tennessee is getting Texters with a Trooper driving a Semi videoing the Offenders. Then a chase car get them and slams them with $10,000 fine and seizure of their phone.

Hopefully all States start doing the same thing.

Are you serious? A $10,000 fine? That's a bit excessive actually. It's around $500 where I live.

I find the worst are the aggressive drivers. They drive around like crazy people for no good reason at all.

Texting is as bad as Drunk driving, actually worse because there is so many more people Texting. The fine for Drunk driving is also $10,000 plus prison time if multiple offense or hurt others.
