There's balanced and then there's balanced.

Your reaction to this article as polarizing is interesting as the polar opposite view is currently in effect, that drivers are rarely, if ever, held responsible for hitting cyclists or pedestrians. It's almost as if we accept that you don't REALLY have to control this thing that you're driving...

If the visibility was as poor as the original article implies then she shouldn't have been driving at the speed she was driving at.

Regardless, to sue the boy's estate is beyond crass. It is, however, the natural result of a society that considers drivers blameless. Much like that girl in Australia who is upset that the cyclist whose back she broke had the nerve to damage her car with his bike.
