One thought on “10 year-old boy struck by hit-and-run motorist”
  1. Hit and run needs to be prosecuted very seriously, especially in cases where injuries occur. 
    I’ve heard people say that the penalties for hit and run are lower than the penalties for other associated things, such as DWI. Some drivers make the calculation that they’re better off taking their chances and driving away rather than face serious consequences.

    KUAZ, during their traffic updates, routinely uses the phrase “hit and run accident.” Hit and run isn’t an accident, it’s a crime and a deliberate choice.
