What a Face

Of course the stupid idiot should be jailed...

That brainless fool should never have been on a motorway in the first place if she's so careless and incompetent..

Should have been charged with the equivalent of negligent manslaughter/ careless driving causing death.
And she should be banned from driving for life -- 3-and-a-half years is plain ridiculous..

The lorry driver was no better. He should have kept his distance so he had time to stop. When will people learn to keep the correct distance from the vehicle in front?

Too true, that...

Over here, the legal distance required is a 3 second gap for cars and motorbikes, 5 seconds for trucks and buses..

Still,  "two wrongs don't make a right".
