Thanks, Jonathan, for the follow up.
Do either of those citations come with penalties (financial or otherwise)?

I really believe all traffic violations should as needed be appended with the result of the violation, like “failure to obey a traffic control device; causing an injury collision” and the fine multiplied by some amount, say, 10x for injury, 25x for death.

Yeah, I like this idea.

Meanwhile enforcement dollars being spent ticketing cyclists for rolling Ladds stop signs, which poses very little threat to public safety. It’s a world gone mad.

I would have thought a bike accident would be on the front page…

I guess a broken arm isn’t enough of an injury to trigger the Vulnerable User Law… good to know it wasn’t worse…

Uninsured motorist? I’d vote to make sure that the car isn’t returned to the driver until the victim is “made whole” again.
