cars are dangerous and roads are chaotic: proof

The Spectator is reporting that
"Allan Maki, who was convicted of dangerous driving causing three deaths when he went into diabetic shock, has been handed a suspended sentence without jail time. The judge called the ruling exceptional, because Maki has Type I diabetes. The judge said he had no intent of causing harm. The Crown was seeking a reformatory sentence. Maki was given three years' probation, a 10-year driving prohibition and has to complete 240 hours of community service within 18 months - all of which are the maximum allowable."
The original tragic story unfolded here, in Hamilton on York Blvd.
